|Connecting Systems Using Reactive Network Configuration in Oracle Solaris 11.1 Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
In reactive network configuration, the system automatically adapts to any change in network condition and network configuration without requiring manual reconfiguration. For example, if your wired network interface becomes unplugged or if a new wireless network becomes available, the system adapts accordingly. With the primary focus on mobility, a reactive configuration policy allows the system's configuration to be changed dynamically, in response to different network events or at a user's request.
The system's network configuration is organized into profiles. Profiles are either reactive or fixed. A reactive profile includes properties that determine when the profile or its components should be enabled. These properties enable the profile to be applied dynamically by the network management daemon, nwamd. For information about fixed network configuration and the distinction between fixed network and reactive network configuration, see What Is Fixed Network Configuration? in Connecting Systems Using Fixed Network Configuration in Oracle Solaris 11.1.
