Adding 2nd NIC

I have already configured int. hme0. ( mask gw

To add another unused int fjgi0 I had executed
ifconfig fjgi0 plumb
. This made that fjgi0 int. is viewable.

What I need to do now is to add this int. to network

Is it just enough to add entries like below:

/etc/inet/ipnodes localhost prode1 loghost temp1

??? - what gateway should be used now ?


/etc/hosts localhost prod1 loghost temp1

and create /etc/hostname.fjgi0

Should it just work like that after execute:
svcadm restart network/physical
If not how multi-NIC configuration should looks like ?

These steps look okay to me.

Dont know why but after I plugged cable into fjgi0 port (which is on additional card) the LED's wont light. Also no traffic can be found.
I checked wire and it's OK.

Wonder is it maybe a matter of hardware... not configuration.
Will be digging into that.

Thanks for confirmation
