How to Install EVB

  1. Become an administrator.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  2. Verify whether the EVB package is installed.
    # pkg info evb
  3. If the EVB package is not installed, install the package.
    # pkg install evb
  4. Verify whether the service is enabled.
    # svcs vdp
  5. If the service is not enabled, enable the service.
    # svcadm enable vdp

    The default EVB configuration is automatically enabled after EVB package installation. By accepting the default EVB configuration, the system can immediately exchange the information about any VNIC that you configure on the system with the external switch.
