Procedure Explains Network Auto Magic Service August 30, 2012,
Volume 174, Issue 5
User 20121221 blogs on how to create an active/active ipmp configuration with Solaris 11, in which automated network configuration is managed by a Solaris service called "nwam" or "Network Auto Magic". The nawm service is turned on by default, the post explains, and must be disabled before you manually make changes to the settings for static IP addresses. One must also employ the "default" physical networking service and be aware that these procedures in turn disable the ipv6 on the interfaces, which persists across reboots. The post notes that the ipadm command is the preferred tool to manage the configuration of the interfaces and goes on to provide the necessary code samples.
