PARTIAL SUMMARY: sun trunking

The answer is the default behavior for Sun systems is that all
interfaces will have the same mac address unless
you set
in the eeprom and reboot.
In regards to the instance number , they are per driver so you can have
two instance 0.
I ran ifconfig and brought up the trunk and all appears okay, however a
snoop on hme0 still shows packets bound for qfe0 trunk and vice-versa,
hence my confusion that I had actually configured my trunk head with
hme0 and not qfe0. This may be due to the interfaces have the same mac
address-guess I'll take a look at the snoop man pages a little more
Many Thanks for the quick response go to:
