The following concise post is intended as a reference to the networking commands used to satisfy basic networking requirements on a Solaris 11 host.
Using dladm and ipadm commands to modify the live configuration and also modify the config files in one go, means that networking changes made this way are persistent, i.e. survive a system reboot.
Show Network Links
Show Network Addresses
Create IP interface
ipadm create-ip net0 && dladm show-link && dladm show-phys net0
At this point although there is an IPv4 interface, there is no IP address bound to it (just the internal loopback address).
Configure IP interface to use DHCP
ipadm create-addr -T dhcp net0 && ipadm show-addr
Configure Static IP address on IP interface
ipadm create-addr -T static -a 192.168.1.200 net0 && ipadm show-addr
Delete IP interface
In our case, the IP interface that is configured to use DHCP.
ipadm delete-addr -r net0/v4
