Hi all, I've got a situation that doesn't seem to be really covered in the various docs I've read up to now. I have a number of servers where I want to do something like the following, if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I would like to host a number of zones on a server, let's say an m4000, but I want those zones to be on a different subnet than the global. So far, no problem: use exclusive-IP. However, currently I don't have enough NICs to give one each to all zones. One thought I had was a sort of mix of shared-IP and exclusive-IP. Give a couple of different zones the same NIC in exclusive-IP mode. I haven't tried it, but I'm fairly certain this won't work, as each zone will try to control the NIC itself. My major concern is to get the global zone on one subnet, while the non-globals will be at least one other subnet, possibly others. Using shared-IP, I know we had routing issues. I can't remember if it was on the global side or the local, but I know there were issues. Perhaps this has been fixed in more recent releases? We are currently running Solaris 10 08/2007. At this point there wouldn't really be time to move up to the latest release, though we use UCE to patch the global up to date before we start building zones.
