In this Oracle Solaris release, a system's network configuration is managed by an active network configuration profile (NCP). If the active NCP in the system is automatic, then network configuration is automatically managed by the OS. If the active NCP is DefaultFixed, then network configuration is performed manually by using the dladm and ipadm commands.
Note - The dladm and ipadm commands do not work if the active NCP is Automatic.
For procedures to determine the system's active profile and to switch to a fixed NCP, see Profiles and Configuration Tools in Oracle Solaris Administration: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization.
For more information about NCPs, refer to Part I, Network Auto-Magic, in Oracle Solaris Administration: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization.
In this documentation, the procedures assume that the active NCP on all of the systems on the network is DefaultFixed.
