The following guidelines describe how to use ILB:
To administer ILB, you must be able to assume a role that includes the ILB Management rights profile, or become superuser. You can assign the ILB Management rights profile to a role that you create. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Initially Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in Oracle Solaris Administration: Security Services.
To enable auditing of ILB configuration commands, you must preselect the system-wide administration audit class. To do so, see Configuring the Audit Service (Task Map) in Oracle Solaris Administration: Security Services.
ILB userland components are delivered as separate IPS package in the Oracle Solaris repository with package names starting with SUNWilb. You must download these packages from the Oracle Solaris repository using the pkg install command. For instructions on installing ILB, see Installing the Integrated Load Balancer.
The ILB NAT implementation in stand-alone mode is limited to just the load-balancing functionality.
ILB provides redundancy only for machine failures and does not handle switch failures. As of now, ILB does not provide synchronization between different machines running ILB.
