Thanks for posting the solution. I wasn't aware of this either. Should be in the how-to

I contacted the support and seems like someone in France wrote the instructions for configuring the network: (no translation available currently).

I didn't manage to get the zone working so i just entered the last three commands and everything seems to work just fine:

ifconfig e1000g0 IP.FAIL.OVER netmask broadcast + up
route add HOST.SERVER.IP.0/24 IP.FAIL.OVER -interface -ifp e1000g0
route add default HOST.GATEWAY.IP

Thanks for the links. Host's IP is and the failover is


route add default

gives me:

add net default: gateway Network is unreachable

The connection works fine if I set as the gateway, but that's not a proper solution.

Type "man route" for instructions (here's one online - read the "Destinations and Gateways" section)

Also, here's a good read: OpenSolaris for Immigrants [PDF]

Has anyone configured virtual macs for NexentaStor/OpenSolaris guest? I have configured the failover ip, netmask and gateway (host IP ending with .254) but I haven't figured out where to add routes that are mentioned in the OVH guide:

route add Dedicated Server IP but end in .254 dev eth0
route add default gw Dedicated Server IP but end in .254
