ProcedureHow to Use dladm reset-linkprop

The dladm command can be used with the reset-linkprop subcommand to reset the bge0 link value to unassigned.

  1. Become superuser, or assume the Primary Administrator role.

    To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Use dladm reset-linkprop with the -t to undo the zone assignment of the bge0 device.

    global# dladm reset-linkprop -t -p zone=excl bge0
    LINK         PROPERTY        VALUE          DEFAULT        POSSIBLE
    bge0         zone            excl           --             --

    Tip –

    The -p option produces a display using a stable machine-parseable format.


If the running zone is using the device, the reassignment fails and an error message is displayed. See Exclusive-IP Zone Is Using Device, so dladm reset-linkprop Fails.
