If you configure IPMP in a guest domain, it functions in the same way a standalone server would. Just make sure you utilize IP based probing to detect failures. If you configure a zone on the guest domain, it's no different from a standalone server. So if you set the physical to vnet0 and it's part of an IPMP group, then the zone is automatically part of the IPMP group. Meaning, you don't have to do anything special. If your vnet0 connection goes down, your global and non-global zone IP's are moved to the other interface in the IPMP group.
FYI, the relationship in LDoms for network interfaces is that the physical NIC is virtualized in the primary domain into a virtual switch (VSW). Your guest domains are connected to that switch through a virtual network interface (VNET). You can have multiple guest domains connected to the VSWs through VNETs. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Octave J.

Is the desire to have both interfaces used by zones for additional bandwidth? Do the zones need ipmp as well, or is it ok if a link failure takes out some of the zones? I'm guessing zones should be on ipmp. Perhaps someone on the ldoms team can suggest a configuration. My guess would be to configure two more vnets (2 and 3) on the same underlying network interfaces, and create another ipmp group. Something like this: vnet0 -> e1000g0 vnet1 -> e1000g1 vnet2 -> e1000g0 vnet3 -> e1000g1 ipmp group 1 vnet0 -> active vnet1 -> standby ipmp group 2 vnet2 -> standby vnet3 -> active Put some zones in group 1 and other zones in group 2. I don't know if this is possible. I don't know how ldoms map vnets to physical interfaces. -Steve L.
