SNMP ifindex in Solaris 10

Unanswered Question
Mar 29th, 2012

Can anyone tell me how I can nail down the SNMP ifmib ifindex table on a Solaris 10 server? Every time the server guys add a subintderface, I have to reconfigure my PRTG and Spectrum models, and it's getting tedious. I cannot believe there is no way to nail down e1000g0=#2, e1000g1=#3, etc.

Thanks in advance.

it should be possible to define the "index" in each /etc/hostname. file

I have never done this, but when the system boots it reads the content of these files and passes them to "ifconfig" to configure the NICs

search this page for "index":
