Managing Datalinks Related to Zones

The dladm command supports a property called zone that enables you to display information about datalinks that are zone-related:

global$ dladm show-linkprop -p zone
LINK         PROPERTY   PERM  VALUE   EFFECTIVE  DEFAULT  POSSIBLE
...
vnic0        zone       rw    zone0   --         --       --
zone0/vnic0  zone       rw    zone0   --         --       --
...

You can temporarily assign a specific zone to a link with the following command:

global$ dladm set-linkprop -t -p zone=zone0 vnic1
global$ dladm show-link -z zone0
LINK         CLASS  MTU   STATE  OVER
zone0/vnic0  vnic   9600  up     stub0
zone0/vnic1  vnic   9600  up     stub0
...

To remove the temporary setting, reboot the zone.


Tip  -  If the running zone is using the device, the reassignment fails and an error message is displayed. See Exclusive-IP Zone Is Using Device, so dladm reset-linkprop Fails.
