Enabling ILB

This section describes the procedures you use to enable ILB.

How to Enable ILB

Before You Begin

Make sure that the system's role-based access control (RBAC) attribute files have the following entries. If the entries are not present, add them manually.

You must set up user authorization for ILB configuration subcommands. You must have the RBAC authorization to execute the ILB configuration subcommands listed in ILB Command and Subcommands.

  1. Assume a role that includes the ILB Management rights profile, or become superuser.

    You can assign the ILB Management rights profile to a role that you create. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Initially Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in Oracle Solaris 11.1 Administration: Security Services.

  2. Enable the appropriate forwarding service either IPv4 or IPv6 or both of them.

    This command produces no output when successful.

    # ipadm set-prop -p forwarding=on ipv4
    # ipadm set-prop -p forwarding=on ipv6
  3. Enable the ILB service.
    # svcadm enable ilb 
  4. Verify that the ILB service is enabled.
    # svcs ilb
