We appear to have a list of physical solaris 10 servers.

Because we are moving boxes we need the information from the whole box, "virtual" zones and all

If we have root / shell access, how can we determine what zones & virtual machines are running on a Solaris 10 physical server ?

It has to be a command or cat a file or something ez

In the global zone, you can determine what the configured zones are by running this command:

zoneadm list -v -c

You can tell if you are in the global zone by running the zonename command. If it comes back with the word
"global" then you are in the global zone and will be able to see all the zones.
