Solaris - dladm link names mapping

Hi all,

I have never wondered where is the mapping of the link names to physical device path display under

dladm show-phys

until today.

fmadm list reported nic port failure and i am trying to mapped it to the correct linkname in dladm show-link / dladm show-phys to see if the link is actually up and running or down.

I remember it used to be under /etc/dladm/ , so i went to list it

ls -la /etc/dladm/
total 29
drwxr-xr-x   2 netadm   netadm         6 Oct 29 17:02 .
drwxr-xr-x  88 root     sys          181 Oct 29 20:56 ..
-rw-r--r--   1 netcfg   netadm      1296 Jun 14 16:06 datalink-Automatic.conf.obsolete
-rw-r--r--   1 netcfg   netadm       512 Sep  7 02:38 datalink-DefaultFixed.conf.obsolete
-rw-r--r--   1 netcfg   netadm      1564 Oct 27 14:30 datalink.conf.obsolete
-rw-rw----   1 dladm    netadm       186 Oct 27 14:08 secobj.conf

Everything has a .obsolete tag behind and i remember that i have recently updated to 11.4
So i went back to mount my old 11.3 boot environment and realize those files in the same path doesn't have a .obsolete behind.

So long story short,

a) do you guys on 11.4 have these .obsolete files as well ?

b) if these files are obsolete, where does 11.4 store these link-to-device information now ?
