Notes

By default, Oracle Solaris assigns link names with the prefix of net. The link name on the interface to the service processor is assigned a prefix of sp-phys. Before installing Solaris, you can change this default by modifying the value of the linkname-policy/phys-prefix and linkname-policy/sp-phys-prefix SMF property of the service svc:/network/datalink-management:default. Specify a new value for these properties in the System Configuration manifests used the Automated Install (AI) program.
