- Zone console device driver
The zcons character driver exports the console for system zones. The driver is comprised of two "sides:" a master side with which applications in the global zone communicate, and a slave side, which receives I/O from the master side. The slave side is available in the global zones.
Applications must not depend on the location of /dev or /devices entries exported by zcons. Inside a zone, the zcons slave side is fronted by /dev/console and other console-related symbolic links, which are used by applications that expect to write to the system console.
The zcons driver is Sun Private, and may change in future releases.
Global zone master side console for zone <zonename>.
Global zone slave side console for zone <zonename>.
Non-global zone console (slave side).
