Solaris Trusted Extensions Installation and Configuration for Solaris 10 11/06 and Solaris 10 8/07 Releases

ProcedureSpecify One IP Address for the System by Using a CDE Action

In this configuration, the host's address applies to all the zones, including the labeled zones.

Before You Begin

You are superuser in the global zone. You are in a Trusted CDE workspace.

  1. Navigate to the Trusted_Extensions folder.

    1. Click mouse button 3 on the background.

    2. From the Workspace menu, choose Applications -> Application Manager.

    3. Double-click the Trusted_Extensions folder icon.

      This folder contains actions that set up interfaces, LDAP clients, and labeled zones.

  2. Double-click the Share Physical Interface action.

    This action configures a host with one IP address. The global zone does not have a unique address. This system cannot be used as a multilevel print server or NFS server.

  3. (Optional) In a terminal window, verify the results of the action.

    # ifconfig -a

    The Share Physical Interface action configures all zones to have logical NICs. These logical NICs share a single physical NIC in the global zone.

    For example, the following output shows the shared physical interface, hme0 on network interface for all the zones.

    lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
           inet netmask ff000000
           ether 0:0:00:00:00:0
    hme0: flags=1000843<BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
           inet netmask fffffe00 broadcast
