Use this procedure to configure IPMP in the global zone and extend the IPMP functionality to non-global zones.
This procedure accomplishes the following:
The cards bge0 and hme0 are configured together in a group.
Address 192.168.0.1 is associated with the non-global zone my-zone.
The bge0 card is set as the physical interface. Thus, the IP address is hosted in the group that contains the bge0 and hme0 cards.
You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.
Become superuser, or assume the Primary Administrator role.
To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.
In the global zone, configure IPMP groups as described in Configuring IPMP Groups in System Administration Guide: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization.
Use the zonecfg command to configure the zone. When you configure the net resource, add address 192.168.0.1 and physical interface bge0 to the zone my-zone:
zonecfg:my-zone> add net zonecfg:my-zone:net> set address=192.168.0.1 zonecfg:my-zone:net> set physical=bge0 zonecfg:my-zone:net> end
Only bge0 would be visible in non-global zone my-zone.
If bge0 subsequently fails and the bge0 data addresses fail over to hme0 in the global zone, the my-zone addresses migrate as well.
If address 192.168.0.1 moves to hme0, then only hme0 would now be visible in non-global zone my-zone. This card would be associated with address 192.168.0.1, and bge0 would no longer be visible.
