addrconf Addresses Cannot Be Configured as IPMP Test Addresses (16885440)

On Oracle Solaris 11.2 systems, IPv6 addrconf type test addresses cannot be reliably configured on IPMP underlying interfaces. Attempts to configure addrconf addresses on an underlying interface will fail in a variety of ways. For example:

# ipadm
NAME              CLASS/TYPE STATE        UNDER      ADDR
net0              ip         ok           ipmp0      --
net1              ip         ok           ipmp0      --
ipmp0             ipmp       ok           --         --
ipmp0/v4          static     ok           --         10.134.xx.xx/24
# ipadm create-addr -T addrconf net0
ipadm: cannot create address: Insufficient memory

Workaround: Because IPMP test addresses are used for probe-based failure detection, you can use a static link-local test address instead of an addrconf test address.
