Creating and Using Oracle® Solaris Zones

Changing Existing Shared-IP Zones to Exclusive-IP Zones

Shared-IP type zones can be updated to exclusive-IP zones. In most cases, you replace the zonecfg net resources with anet resources and change the ip-type to exclusive.

    If you have existing shared-IP zones using interfaces that are part of a global zone IPMP group, switch to using DLMP aggregations. Use the dladm create-aggr subcommand to create the aggregations.

  1. In the global zone, create a DLMP aggregation on the old IPMP interfaces.

  2. Create a zonecfg anet resource, where the lower-link property points to the DLMP aggregation.

For information about dladm, see the dladm(8) man page. Also see Strategies for Network Administration in Oracle Solaris 11.4.
