Communication issues due to a non-global zone defrouter on a global zone subnet
Last updated on JULY 08, 2016
Applies to:Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 10 10/08 U6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Zones - including the global zone - of a system experience intermittent communication issues with systems on remote subnets. Sometimes connections and "pings" between remote systems work fine, sometimes they do not. The remote systems / IP addresses which can be reached and communicated with are not always the same.
The system was configured with shared-ip non-global zones using the "defrouter" zonecfg(1m) option, which was introduced with Solaris 10 update 6 (10/08).
