Administering IPMP (Tasks)

This chapter provides tasks for administering interface groups with IP network multipathing (IPMP) in the Oracle Solaris 11 release.

This chapter covers the following topics:

Note - The tasks in this chapter describe how to configure IPMP using the ipadm command, which replaces the ifconfig command that is used in Oracle Solaris 10 and previous releases. To find out more about how these two commands map to each other, see Appendix A, Comparison Map: ifconfig and ipadm Commands, in Connecting Systems Using Fixed Network Configuration in Oracle Solaris 11.1.

Oracle Solaris 11 also introduces a new conceptual model for IPMP. For a detailed explanation, see How IPMP Works.
