Last updated on OCTOBER 02, 2019

Applies to:

Solaris x64/x86 Operating System - Version 11.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Create a persistent point-to-point connection with Solaris 11 which survives reboots.


This does not work:

root@sol11u3b:~# ipadm create-ip net2
root@sol11u3b:~# ipadm create-addr -T static -a
local=,remote= net2/v4pp
ipadm: cannot create address: Invalid argument provided


This does work but it does not survive a reboot:

root@sol11u3b:~# ipadm create-addr -T static -a local= net2/v4pp
root@sol11u3b:~# ifconfig net2 destination
root@sol11u3b:~# ifconfig -a
mtu 1500 index 4
inet --> netmask ff000000
