Solaris virtual interfaces
In this example, I create virtual interface bge0:1 with hostname host and IP 10.209.173.48. The interface is also configured to initialize after reboots.
The /24 netmask for this network already exists in /etc/netmasks:
# ifconfig bge0:1 plumb # ifconfig bge0:1 10.209.173.48 netmask + broadcast + up Setting netmask of bge0:1 to 255.255.255.0
Add the following to /etc/hosts:
Add the following entry to /etc/hostname.bge0:1 for the interface to initialize after a reboot.
