Configure an Active-Standby IPMP Group

1. Create an IPMP interface

ipadm create-ip net0
ipadm create-ip net1
ipadm create-ipmp ipmp0

2. Add the physical interfaces net0 and net1 to the ipmp group.

ipadm add-ipmp -i net0 -i net1 ipmp0

3. Assign the test IP address for the interface for probe-based failure detection

ipadm create-addr -T static -a net0
ipadm create-addr -T static -a net1

4. Assign IP address to ipmp interface

ipadm create-addr -T static -a ipmp0

5. Configure standby interface ( net1)

ipadm set-ifprob -p standby=on -m ip net1

6. Check the staus of the IPMP interfaces:
ipmpstat -a

[email protected]:~# ipmpstat -a
 ::           down  ipmp0   --       -- up   ipmp0  net0   net1 net0

ipmpstat -g

[email protected]:~# ipmpstat -g
ipmp0       ipmp0       ok        10.00s    net1 net0

ipmpstat -t

[email protected]:~# ipmpstat -t
net1        routes
net0        routes


Create an aggregation and assign IP address
1. create a aggregated network port using two physical interface

dladm create-aggr -l net2 -l net3 aggr0

2. View the aggreation details

dladm show-aggr

3. View the aggreation link

dladm show-link

4. Create/plumb the aggr interface

ipadm create-ip aggr0

5. Create a IP address in the aggreated link

ipadm create-addr -T static -a aggr0/v4

6. Check the IP details

ipadm show-addr

7. Show information about the interfaces that are attached to the system.

ipadm show-if
