Flexible Names for Link Aggregations

Flexible names can be assigned to link aggregations. Any meaningful name can be assigned to a link aggregation. For more information about flexible or customized names, see Assigning Names to Data Links. Previous Solaris releases identify a link aggregation by the value of a key that you assign to the aggregation. For an explanation of this method, see Overview of Link Aggregations. Although that method continues to be valid, preferably, you should use customized names to identify link aggregations.

Similar to all other data-link configurations, link aggregations are administered with the dladm command.
