Network configuration on OpenSolaris

Static IP address

Assigning a static IP address on OpenSolaris is accomplished by editing the hostname files in the directory /etc. For example, assign a static IP address to interface bge0 by editing /etc/hostname.bge0:

192.168.0.123

Set the netmask by editing the file /etc/inet/netmasks:

192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0

Set the default gateway by editing the file /etc/defaultrouter:

192.168.0.1

Network interface bonding

In this example, 10.0.0.1 is the interface of the bond, 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.3 are test addresses. Start by editing /etc/hostname.e1000g0:

10.0.0.2 netmask + broadcast + group production
deprecated addif 10.0.0.1 netmask + broadcast + failover up

Then edit /etc/hostname.e1000g1:

10.0.0.3 netmask + broadcast + group production
deprecated + failover standby up
