dladm shoud be available as /usr/sbin/dladm. If you run the command as root, you'll get something like:

Code:
# dladm show-dev
bge0            link: up        speed: 100   Mbps       duplex: full
bge1            link: unknown   speed: 0     Mbps       duplex: unknown

The output shows you all network interfaces recognized by the operating system, no matter if they are plumbed or not.

no it don't exist in /usr/sbin/dladm in my OS. One more thing when i reboot the system. it give the following error,
failed to configure IPv4 interface(s); elxl0

what is the output of:
Code:
uname -a
cat /etc/release

?

to get rid of the elxl0 message, just delete or rename the file /etc/hostname.elxl0
