Hello,

I am trying to create a zone on a system, and assign an IP address  
from a different subnet to that zone. (The network infrastructure  
takes care of forwarding the packets to my system). From the global  
zone, the following test works (the IP address assigned to vfe0:1 can  
be ping'ed from the Internet) :

# uname -a
SunOS semnoz 5.10 Generic_127128-11 i86pc i386 i86pc

# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu  
8232 index 1
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
vfe0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500  
index 2
        inet xx.121.24.211 netmask ffffff00 broadcast xx.121.24.255
        ether 0:17:31:c3:ea:e6


# ifconfig vfe0:1 plumb
# ifconfig vfe0:1 xx.121.41.77 netmask 255.255.255.255
# ifconfig vfe0:1 up

# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu  
8232 index 1
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
vfe0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500  
index 2
        inet xx.121.24.211 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 91.121.24.255
        ether 0:17:31:c3:ea:e6
vfe0:1: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500  
index 2
        inet xx.121.41.77 netmask ffffffff broadcast 91.121.41.77



Now if I try to do the same with a zone, for which the network  
configuration is as follows :

add net
set address=xx.121.41.77/32
set physical=vfe0
end

After booting the zone, my network interfaces are as follows :

# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu  
8232 index 1
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
lo0:1: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL>  
mtu 8232 index 1
        zone tournette
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
vfe0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500  
index 2
        inet xx.121.24.211 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 91.121.24.255
        ether 0:17:31:c3:ea:e6
vfe0:1: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500  
index 2
        zone tournette
        inet xx.121.41.77 netmask ffffffff broadcast 91.121.41.77


Now the IP address assigned to vfe0:1 cannot be ping'ed, using snoop  
in the global  zone I see the ICMP's coming but nothing being replied.

What am I missing ?

Thanks for your help,
Alain
