How to Add an Interface to an IPMP Group

Before You Begin

Ensure that the interface that you add to the group meets all of the necessary requirements. For a list of requirements, see How to Plan an IPMP Group.

  1. Become the root role.
  2. If the underlying IP interface does not yet exist, create the interface.
    # ipadm create-ip under-interface
  3. Add the IP interface to the IPMP group.
    # ipadm add-ipmp -i under-interface ipmp-interface

    ipmp-interface refers to the IPMP group to which you want to add the underlying interface.

Example 20  Adding an Interface to an IPMP Group

The following example shows how you would add the net4 interface to the IPMP group ipmp0.

# ipadm create-ip net4
# ipadm add-ipmp -i net4 ipmp0
# ipmpstat -g
ipmp0   ipmp0       ok         10.00s    net0 net1 net4
