Network Physical Connectivity Check for Solaris and Linux

Ramdev

I have started unixadminschool.com ( aka gurkulindia.com) in 2009 as my own personal reference blog, and later sometime i have realized that my leanings might be helpful for other unixadmins if I manage my knowledge-base in more user friendly format. And the result is today's' unixadminschool.com. You can connect me at - https://www.linkedin.com/in/unixadminschool/

    @All, ndd / kstat / dladm are traditional solaris commands (ndd,dladm only solaris 10) and (kstat solaris 10 and prior), netstat, arp, rarp, snoop, tcpdump most commonly used in Interface/network connectivity issue. Most importantly in Solaris 11, ndd and kstat are going to replaced by a new robost networking model using “IPADM” set of commmands. Its will replace the traditional thinking with very new and robost networking model.

    @Vignesh, I personally suggest you to go with Linux. Solaris + Linux is a very good combination. In today’s industry you will find Linux with every customer to reduce cost for NON-prod. environments. moreover as per industry survey Linux will be in boom for many years from Now.

      Santhu, I would use “ifconfig -a plumb” , whenever i don’t know the names of unused interfaces. It won’t disturb the existing interfaces but enable all other unconfigured ones. you can later unplumb whatever you don’t want.
