I am running Solaris 11.1 (in a VM) and have two NICs installed.
At a root console, if I type
dladm show-phys, it lists
net1 and some info for each.
I want to name the links more descriptively, as the networking setup in this VM will likely be changed later. So, at the root console I enter:
dladm rename-link net1 sandirect
This yields the error:
dladm: rename operation failed: invalid argument
Why can't I rename the link?
