Quick (and dirty?) howto: Solaris IPMP with VLAN tagging

Here the following commands I use to create a IPMP (IP Multipathing) groups (master/slave):


#!/bin/sh

# Plumb physical interfaces
ifconfig nge1 plumb
ifconfig nge2 plumb

# Plumb 802.1q interfaces
ifconfig nge544001 plumb
ifconfig nge544002 plumb

# Configure interfaces
ifconfig nge544001 group hosts deprecated -failover up
ifconfig nge544002 group hosts deprecated -failover standby up

# Add logicial interface
ifconfig nge544001 addif 10.16.244.60 netmask 255.255.252.0 up

You can also tweak the multipath daemon by editing /etc/default/mpathd to decrease the value to detect a NIC failure.

    You don’t even need to plumb the main interfaces (nge{0,1}) for this to work ūüôā
