Original Question:
> Environment : Ultra 1 Solaris 2.5.1
> Because Solaris configures the ethernet address of 2nd or subsequent
> lan interfaces to be the same as the onboard interface, how can one
> find out the real ethernet adresses of these additional interfaces?


>From casper Dik:

There is no "real" ethernet address. A system has one ethernet address;
The cards sold by Sun do not have ethernet addresses.

Same answer supplied by a number of other people.
My thanks to them all.
