ProcedureHow to Use dladm set-linkprop

The dladm command can be used with the set-linkprop subcommand to temporarily assign data-links to running exclusive-IP zones. Persistent assignment must be made through the zonecfg command.

You must be the global administrator in the global zone to administer data-links.

  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 set-linkprop with the -t to add bge0 to a running zone called excl.

    global# dladm set-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.
