|Connecting Systems Using Reactive Network Configuration in Oracle Solaris 11.1 Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
In Oracle Solaris, network configuration is implemented by multiple SMF services as follows:
svc:/network/loopback:default – Creates the IPv4 and IPv6 loopback interfaces.
svc:/network/netcfg:default – Manages the network configuration repository, with its primary function being to start the netcfgd daemon. This service is a prerequisite for the svc:/network/physical:default service.
svc:/network/physical:default – Brings up links and plumbs IP interfaces. This service starts the network management daemon, nwamd.
svc:/network/location:default – Enables the Location profile that is selected by the nwamd daemon. This service is dependent on the svc:/network/physical:default service.
Note - The svc:/network/location:default service has a property that stores the current Location profile. Do not directly manipulate this property. Rather, use the CLI or the network administration GUI to make these types of changes.
