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.
