Shared-IP Network Interfaces

Each non-global zone that requires network connectivity has one or more dedicated IP addresses. These addresses are associated with logical network interfaces that can be placed in a zone. Zone network interfaces configured by zonecfg will automatically be set up and placed in the zone when it is booted. The ipadm command can be used to add or remove logical interfaces when the zone is running. Only the global administrator or a user granted the appropriate authorizations can modify the interface configuration and the network routes.

Within a non-global zone, only that zone's interfaces are visible to the ipadm command.

For more information, see the ipadm (1M) and if_tcp (7P) man pages.
