Traceroute problem in solaris

I have following ifconfig -a output on my soalris 10 box

# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index
        inet netmask ff000000
e1000g2361000: flags=201000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,CoS> mtu 1500
        inet netmask fffffc00 broadcast
        groupname GUN2363
        ether 0:15:17:8e:d8:e4
e1000g2361000:1: flags=201000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,CoS> mtu 15
        inet netmask fffffc00 broadcast

And when i do traceroute it comes from the parent interface e1000g2361000 rather than e1000g2361000:1

3# traceroute
traceroute: Warning: Multiple interfaces found; using @ e1000g2361000
traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
 1 (  0.274 ms  0.097 ms  0.094 ms

What could be the reason for this .. and is there any i can change it to come back from the e1000g2361000:1 interface ? rather than e1000g2361000

You might try
traceroute -i e1000g2361000:1

I know that but my oracle application does not do like that .. it needs it without specifying the interface itself

i would take a look at your route table.

show us the output of `netstat -rn`

and what exactly doesn't like your oracle application as the command succeed anyway ? The warning message ?

Problem is that the virtual interfaces are configured with application ips which are hardcoded for e1000g2361000:1 and when the data comes back from the e1000g2361000 interface it does not work

What has that to do with traceroute ?
What do you mean data comes back ?
