Vanity names for network interfaces
Sebastien posted a walk through a really nice feature that found it´s way to the Opensolaris build 83: vanity names for network interfaces.
Now you can give any name you want to a network interface. For example: You have four e1000g interfaces in your system. Without this feature they would be named e1000g0 to e1000g4 by Solaris. Now you name them eth0 to eth1 with some simple commands:
dladm rename-link e1000g0 eth2
But why should you use the cryptic linux naming scheme? We can do better than that!
dladm rename-link e1000g0 internet0
dladm rename-link e1000g1 dmz0
dladm rename-link e1000g2 private0
