|Oracle Solaris Administration: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization Oracle Solaris 11 Express 11/10|
When transitioning from a previous NWAM version, the following changes should be noted:
During an installation or upgrade of Oracle Solaris, the User NCP is created, if an /etc/nwam/llp file already exists. If the llp file contains a static IP address, the User NCP is activated after the installation. Otherwise, the Automatic NCP is activated.
Much like the User NCP, the User Location profile is also created during an installation or upgrade, based your system's existing network configuration. The User Location profile is only activated if the current configuration includes NIS or LDAP client configuration, as neither of these configurations are part of the Automatic location.
Note - The activation mode for the User location is manual. This location is activated after an upgrade. Because the nwamd daemon does not override a manually enabled Location profile, you must explicitly disable the User location to enable the dynamic Location profile that the nwamd daemon has selected.
