How to Disable Link Protection

This procedure resets link protection to the default value, no link protection.

Before You Begin

You must become an administrator who is assigned the Network Link Security rights profile. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

  1. Disable link protection by resetting the protection property to its default value.
    # dladm reset-linkprop -p protection link
  2. Verify that the link protections are disabled.
    # dladm show-linkprop -p protection vnic0
