Team, I'm new to zones-discuss, so apologies if this has already been posted.
I would like to configure hundreds (maybe thousands) of zones on a single machine. I've had good luck up until ~250 running zones, at which point I run out room to alias more loopback network interfaces. Here's the error messsage from the global zone: Aug 26 17:05:03 iwa1-ar zoneadmd: [zone 'zone0506'] WARNING: skipping network interface 'lo0' which may not be present/plumbed in the global zone.: No buffer space available And from the zone trying to boot: Aug 27 01:13:02 zone0506 smcboot: bind: Cannot assign requested address On the global zone, the loopback interface (lo0) has 255 aliases and (I assume) can't add anymore. I got around this problem with the regular interfaces by adding more physical interfaces to the machine and configured the zones in blocks of 250 each assigned to different physical interfaces. I seem to be blocked at the loopback device though. Does anyone know if there is a way around this? Could I somehow add additional loopback addresses and tell the zones at configuration time to latch on to something other than lo0 for the loopback alias?
