Add virtual IP for system to be managed in SAP Adaptive Computing environment

It applies to Solaris 10 operating system, global zone. On the system to be AC managed, add two virtual IP addresses, one for database instance and one for central instance:

1. Add IP/Hostname pairs in /etc/hosts
10.60.11.216 v216
10.60.11.217 v217

2. use ifconfig to bring up the virtual network interfaces
# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849 mtu
8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
bge0: flags=1000843 mtu 1500 index 2
inet 10.60.11.203 netmask fffff800 broadcast 10.60.15.255
ether 0:3:ba:51:bc:c1

# ifconfig bge0:1 plumb
# ifconfig bge0:1 10.60.11.216 netmask 255.255.248.00 up

# ifconfig bge0:2 plumb
# ifconfig bge0:2 10.60.11.217 netmask 255.255.248.0 up

# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849 mtu
8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
bge0: flags=1000843 mtu 1500 index 2
inet 10.60.11.203 netmask fffff800 broadcast 10.60.15.255
ether 0:3:ba:51:bc:c1
bge0:1: flags=1000843 mtu 1500 index 2
inet 10.60.11.216 netmask fffff800 broadcast 10.60.15.255
bge0:2: flags=1000843 mtu 1500 index 2
inet 10.60.11.217 netmask fffff800 broadcast 10.60.15.255

3. Create a file in /etc directory, hostname.bge0:1 with hostname entry
Add entry in /etc/netmask if IP address is on different subnet
