Is the non-global zone ip interface set to "shared"?
Both global and non-global zone look to be set to use "net0" so if the non-global zone requests "exclusive", it's not going to get it because the global zone is using it.
Thanks for your reply. How can I check to see if it is shared?
Also, the instructions I used to create a zone mention this:
By default, all Oracle Solaris Zones are configured to have an automatic VNIC called anet, which gives us a network device automatically. We cannot see this network device yet, because it is automatically created when the zone is booted and also automatically destroyed on shutdown.
So I thought the interface should be automatically set up on the zone.
There might be some confusion because on the global zone the physical interface is also named net0, perhaps because the global zone is an LDom. So my global zone shows this:
While the aforementioned instructions show this:
Confusing for a network novice such as myself
Your physical interfaces are e1000g0 and e1000g1. You don't say what your hardware is. You may also have e1000g2 and e1000g3 is your box has 4 Ethernet interfaces.
A non-global zone has its virtual interface mapped to a physical interface using zonecfg. (Look at the man pages for zonecfg and see the options involving <physical interface>.
The global zone may have been installed to use just one ethernet interface or more than one interface, either as separate ip addresses or teamed together (technical known as aggregation (aggr) in the Solaris world).
If your global zone only uses e1000g0 then you can configure your non-global zone to use e1000g1 exclusively (dedicated to this zone). Alternatively, you could configure it as "shared" and configure it on the same interface as the global zone. To use the same interface as the global zone, a non-global cannot be configured to use that interface "exclusive", of course!!!!
Thanks again for your reply. I apologize, I may have been unclear: e1000g0 and e1000g1 are from the instructions on the Oracle blog. My global zone is showing one interface, net0.
How many non-global zones do you have? You don't want to run out of available interfaces by configuring them as exclusive if you haven't got enough.
I have one non-global zone, this test zone that I have created.
I think I see what you mean about shared/exclusive interface. Is it this?
Would you suggest that I run the command "zonecfg set ip-type=shared" and try again?
I have attempted to set the ip-type to "shared" to see if that would do the trick, unfortunately it is giving me an error:
Seems like I'm wrong and Solaris 11 has a new way of configuring zone network interfaces.
What hardware is this?
Thank you, I will look through these links.
The hardware is a SPARC T3-1 with one ethernet cable plugged into the back. The global zone is an LDom running on the host machine. My host machine, global zone and local zone all have IPs on the same subnet.
Hi, hoping someone can help, its been a while since I used Solaris.
After creating a NGZ (non global zone), the NGZ can access the GZ (Global Zone) and the GZ can access the NGZ (using ssh, zlogin)
However, the NGZ cannot access any other netwqork devices, it can't even see the default router
