[SunRay-Users] SRSS supported when running under a virtualized Solaris?

Sun Ray Server Software is supported where ever a full version of a 
Solaris is supported.  That could be VMWare, LDOMS, etc.  That doesn't 
mean it will be as performant as bare metal, and in some cases it makes 
troubleshooting a tad more difficult (wrong PV drivers for networking of 
the guest, etc) but yes it's supported.

The global zone reference is about Solaris containers, i.e. zones and 
some customers would like to run instances of SRSS in  zones, but SRSS 
need the ability to install drivers and create device nodes which are 
possible in a non-global zone.

The  only information I can find is that it has to run in the global zone -- but that doesn't cover if the operating system itself is virtualized. If anyone knows or can point me to some documentation on this I would appreciate it! Thanks!  -- Russ
