Im no solaris expert but I am sure netstat -rn should give you some clues (like if you see interface bge0:2 or ce0:3 etc...)

Bug

Just found ONE way to find if the server is an physical or virtual.. (may not always be the right one though)
If u find vm related files under /usr/bin..then its an virtual..else its not..
Code:
cd /usr/bin
ls -ltr vm*
-r-xr-xr-x  71 root     bin         5816 Jan  8  2007 vmware-user
-r-xr-xr-x  71 root     bin         5816 Jan  8  2007 vmware-toolbox
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     bin        36224 May 19  2008 vmstat
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     root      138279 Mar 26 06:56 vmware-uninstall-tools.pl
-r-xr-xr-x   1 root     root      336031 Mar 26 06:56 vmware-config-tools.pl

That only holds true if the server is virtualized through a VMware product & has the Tools installed.
