Install the driver in the global zone.

Create a new zone by following the procedure here:


After doing the command:

# zoneadm -z my-zone install

Which creates the whole file system structure, we can modify that Zone's file system by just going into it from the Global Zone:

# cd /export/home/my-zone/dev

Now, we just need to create the node inside there.

In the global zone:

# ls -l /dev/dty/a001s
crw-rw-rw- 1 root other 203, 1 Aug 4 19:24 /dev/dty/a001s

Did the following:

# mkdir /export/home/my-zone/dev/dty
# chmod 777 /export/home/my-zone/dev/dty
# mknod /export/home/my-zone/dev/dty/a001s c 203 1

Verify that its the same:

# ls -l /export/home/my-zone/dev/dty/a001s
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 203, 1 Aug 4 20:08

Now reboot the my-zone zone:

# zoneadm -z my-zone reboot

Log back into that zone:

# zlogin my-zone
[Connected to zone 'my-zone' pts/4]

Sun Microsystems Inc. SunOS 5.10 Generic January 2005

Verify the device is still there:

bash-3.00# ls -l /dev/dty/a001s
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 203, 1 Aug 4 21:08 /dev/dty/a001s

Verify that the tty works:

bash-3.00# stty -a </dev/dty/a001s | grep speed
speed 9600 baud;

All done! =)
