This procedure is required if you use an exclusive IP stack and per zone addresses, and you plan to connect the labeled zones to labeled zones on other systems on the network.
In this procedure, you create a VNIC and assign it to a labeled zone.
Before You Begin
You must be in the root role in the global zone.
The list of zones is displayed in the Labeled Zone Manager. To open this GUI, see How to Create Labeled Zones Interactively. The labeled zone that you are configuring must be halted.
A list of configuration options is displayed.
If your system has more than one VNIC card, more than one choice is displayed. Choose the entry with the desired interface.
For example, type 192.0.2.12/24. If you do not append the prefix count, you are prompted for a netmask. The equivalent netmask for this example is 255.255.255.0.
At the prompt, type the IP address of the router, and click OK.
The VNIC entry is displayed. The system assigns the name zonename_n, as in internal_0.
To configure the system's external network, go to How to Connect a Trusted Extensions System to Other Trusted Extensions Systems.
