Network Layer

You perform network configuration at the network layer by using the ipadm command.

    The following are some of the types of IP configuration that you can perform at this layer:

  • IP interface configuration with names that have a one-to-one correspondence with datalink names

  • IP network multipathing (IPMP)

  • Virtual Network Interfaces (VNIs)

  • Multiple IP addresses for one IP interface

  • IPv4 and IPv6 addresses configured on a single IP interface

  • IP addresses that are managed by using their address object names

    An address object name consists of the interface name followed by a unique string and represents an IP address configured on the system.
