netcfg and netadm Commands
The netcfg and netadm commands are used to manage
various types of profiles. Most of the features that are provided by these two commands are targeted
at managing reactive profiles. The netcfg command is rarely used on corporate
servers. These types of servers typically use the fixed mode.
The netadm command is used to enable and disable profiles and display
information about profiles and their states. See Enabling and Disabling
Profiles and Administering Profiles.
You typically configure the properties of reactive profiles by using the
command. However, you can also create persistent configuration for a
reactive profile by using the dladm
commands, if the
profile is currently active. However, you cannot use the netcfg
configure the system's only fixed profile, DefaultFixed
