Error Collecting snoop trace from Solaris zoning sysetm


I have a zone system and want to collect snoop trace.

I tried below command but failed.

# snoop
snoop: No network interface devices found
# snoop -d nxge0
snoop: cannot open "nxge0": DLPI link does not exist
# snoop -d nxge0:1
snoop: cannot open "nxge0:1": invalid DLPI linkname

Solaris version is 10.

From the internet, I learned that snoop are not allowed to access the interfaces.

Can you please suggest or any other way to get the snoop trace.

i looks like you don't have a NIC in your zone(?). what is the output of "ifconfig -a" and "dladm show-dev"?

You are using a shared-IP zone. With this configuration, you can snoop the interface which is shared by the global zone and the non global one from the global zone only.

Snooping a non global zone interface can be allowed only with exclusive-IP zones.
