Identifying Global and Non Global Zones

Here is a quick howto on identifying global and non global zones on Solaris 10.

If you login to a host and need to identify if the host your on is a global zone or a non global zone, the easiest way to do this is to do cat on /etc/host would usually refer to the global host if your in a non global zone ( Correct me if Im wrong here, this is just based on my experience)

Now to identify if your Non global zones are sparse or full zones, you will need to login to the global zones and to zonecfg -z info to get the zonename you can do zoneadm list, the ones with a lot of inherited filesystem are sparse zones and the one with a few inherited filesystem are full zones.

Thats it for today.
