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
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
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?
