[OpenIndiana-discuss] ssh sessions timing out?

Sorry I was being sloppy. I meant in general 'related to ipv6'. At this
point, I think I'm going to just disable ipv6 on the OI entirely. It's a
SAN that is internal to my network only, so I can't see any upside to
leaving ipv6 on...

Actually, that sounds like a completely different problem, unrelated to
name services. That sounds like IPv6 breakage.
Depending on the drivers involved, I remember there being various
hardware checksum offload bugs that can cause all sorts of
strange-looking problems. Some were IPv6-specific.
It might be worthwhile to try rebooting with this in /etc/system:
and, if you're using e1000g, this in /kernel/drv/e1000g.conf:
I don't trust hardware offload schemes any further than I can throw
them. For a minuscule bump in performance, they extract many hours and
days of wasted administrative effort.
