Newbie in need for help with setting up second NIC

Newbie in need for help with setting up second NIC

Post by Michae » Sun, 03 Oct 2004 22:24:18



Hi All,

I brought a Netra AC200 in hope to learn more about Solaris.  From the
back it has two NIC sockets.  I like to know if the NICs are setup as
reductant or if they are two separate NICs.  If the later I would like
to setup the second nic to a different subnet.

I have read a few post on the web and find that I need to set the
local-mac-address? to True so the mac address will show on both NIC.
However, this was not the case for me.

I have the ifconfig -a output.

lo0: flags=1000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 8232 index
1
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
eri0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500
index 2
        inet 192.168.0.106 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 192.168.0.255
        ether 0:3:ba:6:13:c4
lo0: flags=2000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6> mtu 8252 index
1
        inet6 ::1/128
eri0: flags=2000841<UP,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6> mtu 1500 index 2
        ether 0:3:ba:6:13:c4
        inet6 fe80::203:baff:fe06:13c4/10
#

And the netstat -rn output

Routing Table: IPv6
  Destination/Mask            Gateway                   Flags Ref  
Use   If
--------------------------- --------------------------- ----- ---
------ -----
fe80::/10                   fe80::203:baff:fe06:13c4    U       1    
0 eri0
ff00::/8                    fe80::203:baff:fe06:13c4    U       1    
0 eri0
default                     fe80::203:baff:fe06:13c4    U       1    
0 eri0
::1                         ::1                         UH      3    
22 lo0

If I'm reading this right.  I says that I have two NICs, but they both
have the same name "eri0" and MAC address.

How could I configure the second with a different name and IP address.

Thanks,
Michael.

It says that you have both IPv4 and IPv6 setup.  The Sys Admin guide
located at the following URL will help you setup the other NIC which
is eri1.

http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/content/solSysadminGuide/

They are not setup as redundant by default.  You can, however, enable
IP multipathing if you want.

See the following for help:
