Creating Solaris 11 aggregated network interface

This post provides a simple procedure to create an aggregated networker interface and configure networking address under Solaris 11

  1. Execute the dladm command to show available interfaces
    # dladm show-phys
    net1       Ethernet     up       1000   full      e1000g1
    net0       Ethernet     up       1000   full      e1000g0
  2. Create an aggregated interface
    # dladm create-aggr -L active -l net0 -l net1 aggr0
  3. Create an IP interface to use the aggregated interface
    # ipadm create-ip aggr0
  4. Assign an IP address to the new interface
    # ipadm create-addr -a local= aggr0/v4
  5. Create default router for the network
    # route -p add default
  6. Set basic DNS client services
    # svccfg -s svc:/network/dns/client
    svc:/network/dns/client> setprop config/nameserver = net_address: (
    svc:/network/dns/client> quit
    # svcadm refresh svc:/network/dns/client

Note: The above examples consider that the IP is the host and the IP is the router in the network and the IP is the DNS server in the network.
