 Viewing non-global routes from global zone
I asked this question in Sun's Solaris 10 Forums a few days ago and
didn't get a reply, so I'd like to repose it here:

Is there a command or other mechanism by which one can see non-global
routes from the global zone (other than zlogin)?

It's my understanding that only one routing table can exist per kernel,
hence you cannot create per-zone routing tables, hence you cannot
manipulate the sole routing table from the non-global zone, and hence
you lose routes for non-global zones when they are halted/rebooted.

So with the global's evident {*filter*} over the routing table, I'm
puzzled as to why a "netstat -rn" from the global zone does not show
routes with IPs in the non-global zones, routes that *are* visible via
netstat in their respective zones.

Thanks

 Viewing non-global routes from global zone

What non-global routes?

That's correct.

Correct.

Not exactly.  There's no way to create routes for non-global zones, so
you can't lose them.

What you can do is create routes in the global zone that have next hop
addresses that are reachable in a non-global zone.  These routes,
though, will still be visible in the global zone (via netstat and
"route get"), but won't be reachable unless you're in the non-global
zone.

Ah ... you're talking about interface routes, correct?  You can see
the interfaces with "ifconfig," but there's no option in netstat to
avoid filtering based on zone.  This is the subject of CR 6369726.
Ask your local support to add a call record (SR) to that CR.
