Solaris allows multiple virtual or logical interfaces to exist with different IP addresses on the same physical interface. Virtual interfaces are created or plumbed up using the plumb directive in ifconfig. They are unplumbed using the unplumb directive.

To remove the virtual interface eri1:7, run the following command as root:

ifconfig eri1:7 unplumb
