Configure Static VLANs (Oracle Solaris 10)

  1. Create one /etc/hostname.igb# file for each VLAN that will be configured for each EM on the server.

    See VLAN Naming Format.

  2. Use the ifconfig(1M) command to configure each VLAN virtual device.

    Include the IP address in the command you type. For example, if the IP address is, type:

    # ifconfig igb123002 plumb up
  3. Use the ifconfig -a command to see details about the VLAN devices.

    This example shows the output of ifconfig -a on a system having VLAN devices igb123002 and igb224002:

    igb123002: flags=201000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,CoS>\
     mtu 1500 index 4
    inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
    ether 0:13:20:f5:f6:dc
    igb224002: flags=201000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,CoS>\
    mtu 1500 index 5
    inet netmask ffffff00
    ether 0:13:20:f5:f6:dc 

    Note - In the preceding examples, the second NIC output for igb224002 was plumbed and enabled (that is, used the up option), but had no IP address. By default, the netmask and broadcast addresses are set by the system, which uses IP class C to make that setting When the address is set, the ifconfig(1M) command by default does not display the broadcast address if the explicit IP address is not set.

    Refer to the documentation that came with your switch for specific instructions for setting VLAN tagging and ports.
