Solaris Servers in LVS/DR and LVS/TUN Clusters

Jump to: navigation, search


In the Solaris operating systems, ip addresses configured on the loopback interface will not participate the ARP protocol.

Disable ARP for VIP

In LVS/DR clusters, we can disable ARP for VIP on Solaris as follows:

ifconfig lo0:1 plumb
ifconfig lo0:1 VIP/32 netmask up

These two commands can be added just after configuring loopback command in the /etc/rc.S/S??network, so that VIP can be brought up after system boots up.
