A system administrator is attempting to configure the virtual interface:
by running the command:
# ifconfig hme0:500 plumb
but the system administrator receives the error:
ifconfig: plumb: SIOCLIFADDIF: hme0:500 no such interface
Solaris 9 supports up to 8192 virtual interfaces associated with a given physical interface.
What is causing the problem?
The ifconfig syntax is incorrect.
The system administrator needs to reboot.
By default, only quad card interfaces support virtual interfaces.
By default, the kernel only supports up to 256 virtual interfaces.
