    Shut down main interface after restarting the server

    lgarcia556
      Hello.

      I would like to know if there is a way to configure an interface to be down after a restart of the server. I mean, what I want is to have configured the interface but in admin state down. The server would be reachable through the other configured interface ports.

      How can I do that without any script to do an 'ifconfig <interface> down' during starting up? The point is to avoid any time with the interface up during server starting up time.

      This is a Solaris 10/09 x86 ZFS server and it is updated to Jan12 patch bundle.

      Thanks in advance
      Luis.
