System Administration Guide: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization

ProcedureHow to Display Data Link Information

This procedure displays the status of available links.

  1. Assume the System Administrator role.

    The System Administrator role includes the Network Management profile. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Chapter 9, Using Role-Based Access Control (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Display link information.

    # dladm show-link

Example 2–6 Displaying Available Links

The following example shows persistent and available links on the system.

# dladm show-link -P
LINK        CLASS     OVER
subitops1   phys      --
ibd0        phys      --
eri0        phys      --

The -P option also displays any existing persistent but unavailable links. A persistent link becomes unavailable if the link is temporarily deleted. A link also becomes unavailable if the associated hardware has been removed.
