Configure the Network Host Files With the ifconfig Command

Use this procedure to configure the network host files dynamically on the command line. At reboot, the settings will revert.

  1. Create a file named /etc/hostname.ixgbe# for each ixgbe interface.

    where # is the ixgbe interface instance number you plan to use.

    For example, to bring up ixgbe0 at boot, create a file called /etc/hostname.ixgbe0, where 0 is the number of the ixgbe interface. If the instance number were 1, the filename would be /etc/hostname.ixgbe1. The /etc/hostname.ixgbe# file must contain the host name for the appropriate ixgbe interface.

  2. Get the ixgbe instances:

    # dladm show-dev

    The output might include lines similar to the following:

    ixgbe0        link: up      speed: 10000     Mbps duplex: full
    nge0          link: up      speed: 1000      Mbps duplex: full
    nge1          link: down    speed: 0         Mbps duplex: unknown
    ixgbe1        link: up      speed: 10000     Mbps duplex: full
    ixgbe2        link: up      speed: 10000     Mbps duplex: full
  3. Use the ifconfig command to set up the adapter’s ixgbe interfaces.

    Your ifconfig command might look similar to the following:

    # ifconfig ixgbe0 plumb ip_address netmask broadcast + up
