Comparison Map: ifconfig and ipadm Commands

The ipadm command has replaced the ifconfig command for the purpose of configuring network interfaces. Although the ifconfig command is still functional in Oracle Solaris 11, the ipadm command is the preferred tool for networking configuration. However, some ifconfig options do not have equivalent in ipadm subcommands. The following table lists selected command options of the ifconfig command and their equivalents in the ipadm command.

Note - The table does not provide a comprehensive list of ipadm options. For a full list, see theipadm(1M) man page.
