SUMMARY: Configuring second NIC card for local zone

I think I found a solution:  just create a file called
/etc/hostname.e1000g1 in the global zone with nothing in it.

Subject: Configuring second NIC card for local zone


I have two interface card on my global zone.  I need one configured with
an IP address (e1000g0) and the other plumb with no IP address
(e1000g1).  The reason for this is so that local zone boots up with two
interface cards: one with e-1000g0:1 and the other with e1000g1:1 both
with valid IP addresses.  Is it possible to setup the globalzone  to
bring up the e1000g1 plumb without IP addresses?  Do you have a better
solutions or better standard practice?

Thanks in advance.
