Configuring DLMP Aggregations Over Virtual Network Devices

The Oracle VM Server for SPARC software supports datalink multipathing (DLMP) aggregation over virtual network devices on logical domains.

To configure DLMP aggregations over virtual network devices in a domain, ensure that both the service domain and the guest domain run at least the Oracle Solaris 11.4 OS.

While the DLMP aggregation feature is similar to IPMP, IPMP manages IP addresses on a set of network interfaces while DLMP manages the virtual NIC. Both of these features provide high-availability capabilities that enable network connections to remain up even when a service domain becomes unavailable due to a reboot or a panic.
