ProcedureHow to Ensure That the IPQoS Configuration Is Applied After Each Reboot

You must explicitly make an IPQoS configuration persistent across reboots. Otherwise, the current configuration applies only until the system reboots. When IPQoS works correctly on a system, do the following to make the configuration persistent across reboots.

  1. Assume the Primary Administrator role, or become superuser, on the IPQoS-enabled system.

    The Primary Administrator role includes the Primary Administrator profile. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Chapter 2, Working With the Solaris Management Console (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Test for the existence of an IPQoS configuration in the kernel modules.

    # ipqosconf -l

    If a configuration already exists, ipqosconf displays the configuration on the screen. If you do not receive output, apply the configuration, as explained in How to Apply a New Configuration to the IPQoS Kernel Modules.

  3. Ensure that the existing IPQoS configuration is applied every time the IPQoS system reboots.

    # /usr/sbin/ipqosconf -c

    The -c option causes the current IPQoS configuration to be represented in the boot-time configuration file /etc/inet/ipqosinit.conf.
