Also, if the NIC driver supports it, link-based failure detection is always enabled automatically. You cannot disable link-based failure detection if this method is supported by the NIC driver. However, you can select which type of probe-based failure detection to implement.
Before selecting a probe-based detection method, make sure that your probe targets meet the requirements that are listed in Requirements for Choosing Targets for Probe-based Failure Detection.
To use transitive probing, follow these steps:
Enable the IPMP property transitive-probing by using SMF commands.
$ svccfg -s svc:/network/ipmp setprop config/transitive-probing=true $ svcadm refresh svc:/network/ipmp:default
See the in.mpathd(8) man page.
Remove any existing test addresses that have been configured for the IPMP group.
$ ipadm delete-addr address addrobj
addrobj must refer to an underlying interface that hosts a test address.
To use test addresses to probe for failure, assign test addresses to the underlying interfaces of the IPMP group.
$ ipadm create-addr -a address under-interface
address can be in CIDR notation and under-interface is an underlying interface of the IPMP group.
