Set MTU value for ipv6 interfaces


I am trying to set mtu value for ipv6 interfaces. I know how to set it for ipv4 interfaces
ifconfig net1 mtu 1240

Do I need to add any iptype for the above command ?

OS:Solaris 10

# 2  
Have you considered dladm ?

# dladm set-linkprop -p mtu=1240  net1

# 3  

Actually dladm can't be used from non global zone. Still didn't get any luck

# 4  
Set it on the global zone then.?
