System Administration Guide: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization

ProcedureHow to Move an Interface From One IPMP Group to Another Group

You can place an interface in a new IPMP group when the interface belongs to an existing IPMP group. You do not need to remove the interface from the current IPMP group. When you place the interface in a new group, the interface is automatically removed from any existing IPMP group.

  1. On the system with the IPMP group configuration, assume the Primary Administrator role or become superuser.

    The Primary Administrator role includes the Primary Administrator profile. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Chapter 2, Working With the Solaris Management Console (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Move the interface to a new IPMP group.

    # ifconfig interface group group-name

    Placing the interface in a new group automatically removes the interface from any existing group.

Example 8–6 Moving an Interface to a Different IPMP Group

This example assumes that the underlying interfaces of your group are subitops0, subitops1, subitops2, and hme0. To change the IPMP group of interface hme0 to the group cs-link1, you would type the following:

# ifconfig hme0 group cs-link1

This command removes the hme0 interface from IPMP group itops0 and then puts the interface in the group cs-link1.
