Solaris UNIX: Show All Network Interfaces

I've a new Solaris / OpenSolaris unconfigured UNIX server. How do I find out list of network interfaces under Solaris UNIX?

You can use the ifconfig -a command as follows to list all network interfaces:
# ifconfig -a
The above will show you which interfaces are currently installed and active. Use the following command to see list of network cards installed on the UNIX server during installation time:
# dladm show-link

    Hi. If you are on Solaris-11, you may use following command to get the information about NICs:

    #ipadm show-if ==> list interfaces with their speed (100M,1G,..) [it’s not shown with dladm]
    #ipadm show-addr ==> list all interfaces (physical,virtual) with their IPs info.

    The Network management has been completely changed in Solaris-11, introducing Network AutoMagic (NWAM). You may use “ipadm” command to assign IP to interfaces. You can find its conf file in : /etc/ipadm/ipadm.conf
