This article, which is Part 1 of a two-part series, focuses on Oracle Solaris 11 features that enable administrators to configure basic network functionality.
Knowing how to monitor and configure the details of a systems network is an extremely important thing to know how to do for all administrators. Agreed? Okay, cool. For example, you might want to know how many network interfaces exist, what their status is, and what their speed is, and you might also want to configure a network interface. In addition, you might wonder how easy is it to administer the network after configuring it. All of these questions will be answered in this article, by Alexandre, which is a very solid review of the Oracle Solaris 11 network configuration.
