How to Share a Single IP Address With All Zones

This procedure enables every zone on the system to use one IP address, the IP address of the global zone, to reach other identically labeled zones or hosts. This configuration is the default. You must complete this procedure if you have configured the network interfaces differently, and want to return the system to the default network configuration.

Before You Begin

You must be in the root role in the global zone.

  1. Run the txzonemgr command without any options.
    # txzonemgr &

    The list of zones is displayed in the Labeled Zone Manager. For information about this GUI, see How to Create Labeled Zones Interactively.

  2. Double-click the global zone.
  3. Double-click Configure Network Interfaces.

      A list of interfaces is displayed. Look for an interface that is listed with the following characteristics:

    • Type of phys

    • IP address of your hostname

    • State of up

  4. Select the interface that corresponds to your hostname.
  5. From the list of commands, select Share with Shared-IP Zones.

    All zones can use this shared IP address to communicate with remote systems at their label.

  6. Click Cancel to return to the zone command list.
