netmasks Warning Displayed When Booting Zone
If you see the following message when you boot the zone as
described in How to Boot a Zone:
# zoneadm -z my-zone boot
zoneadm: zone 'my-zone': WARNING: hme0:1: no matching subnet
found in netmasks(4) for 192.168.0.1; using default of
The message is only a warning, and the command has succeeded. The
message indicates that the system was unable to find the netmask to be used
for the IP address specified in the zone's configuration.
To stop the warning from displaying on subsequent reboots, ensure that the correct
netmasks databases are listed in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file in the global zone
and that at least one of these databases contains the subnet and netmasks
to be used for the zone my-zone.
For example, if the /etc/inet/netmasks file and the local NIS database are used
for resolving netmasks in the global zone, the appropriate entry in /etc/nsswitch.conf is as
netmasks: files nis
The subnet and corresponding netmask information for the zone my-zone can then
be added to /etc/inet/netmasks for subsequent use.
For more information about the netmasks command, see the netmasks(4) man page.
