You must install the EVB package to use EVB on your system.
For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.
# pkg info evb
# pkg install evb
# svcs vdp
# svcadm enable vdp
The default EVB configuration is automatically enabled after EVB package installation. By accepting the default EVB configuration, the system can immediately exchange the information about any VNIC that you configure on the system with the external switch.
To know more about exchanging VNIC information, the protocols that are used for exchanging the VNIC information, and EVB components, see Exchanging VNIC Information by Using VDP.
To display information about the VSI discovery and configuration protocol (VDP) state for physical Ethernet links if EVB is enabled on the system and also check if VDP packets are being exchanged for VNICs, see Displaying VDP and ECP State and Statistics.
To alter the default EVB configuration, see Changing the Default EVB Configuration.
To display the default EVB configuration information, see Example 45, Displaying EVB-Related Datalink Properties on a Physical Link.
