The commands are quite similar. I am not sure exactly what you are looking
Put the VIP on the loopback interface, lo0 - it won't arp from there,
thus solving the arp problem:
ifconfig lo0:1 inet 192.168.1.1 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
If you try to use the "-arp" option to ifconfig with lo0, you will get an
error as that is not a valid operation on a loopback interface.
Then make sure your web servers (apache, netscape, whatever) are listening
on the VIP (in this case 192.168.1.1).
Is there something I am missing here? Try setting up your director for
telnet first, as Joseph Mack recommends.
I have not actually used Solaris systems as real servers (at least not
with LVS), but I have a lot of Solaris experience and this should work,
I believe (I did test to make sure I was right about the arp).
What have you done and what problems are you having, exactly?
