Use this procedure to configure IPMP in the global zone and extend the IPMP functionality to non-global zones.
Each address, or logical interface, should be associated with a non-global zone when you configure the zone. See Using the zonecfg Command in Introduction to Oracle Solaris Zones and How to Configure the Zone for instructions.
This procedure accomplishes the following:
The cards net0 and net1 are configured together in an IPMP group whose interface is ipmp0.
A data address of ipmp0, 192.168.0.1, is associated with the non-global zone my-zone.
The net0 card is set as the zone's physical interface.
You must be the global administrator or a user granted the appropriate authorizations in the global zone to perform this procedure.
For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .
zonecfg:my-zone> add net zonecfg:my-zone:net> set address=192.168.0.1 zonecfg:my-zone:net> set physical=net0 zonecfg:my-zone:net> end
Only net0 would be visible in non-global zone my-zone.
If net0 subsequently fails, because 192.168.0.1 is assigned to ipmp0, then that address continues to be available through net1. The availability of the address also applies to my-zone. However, after net0 has failed, then net1 becomes the visible interface of my-zone.
