Thank you very much to all who replied. Most suggested using 'df -n'
to determine the mounted filesystems and their type. (Linux has a
similar command line parameter, '-T', but I find the output of
Solaris' version to be more "clean").
Some suggested using the command '/usr/sbin/fstyp' to determine the
filesystem type for both mounted and unmounted filesystems. Since you
must pass the device special file that corresponds to the filesystem,
I had trouble determining it's usage with ZFS filesystems. In
addition, latter versions of the Solaris man page for fstyp come with
"This command is unreliable and its results should not be used to
make any decisions about subsequent use of a storage device or disk
Again, thank you to all who replied.
