How to Deploy ILB

Before You Begin

Ensure that your role has the appropriate rights to perform this procedure. See Using Rights Profiles to Perform Network Configuration.

  1. Install the ILB userland package.
    $ pkg install ilb
  2. Enable IP forwarding services.
    $ ipadm set-prop -p forwarding=on ipv4


    $ ipadm set-prop -p forwarding=on ipv6
  3. Enable the ILB service.
    $ svcadm enable ilb

Disabling ILB

The previous procedure is reversed if you no longer want to use ILB. After the service is disabled, you can disable switch off packet forwarding if this functionality is not used in other network operations.
