NOTES
This tool can only be used to manage physical network devices as returned by the "dladm show-dev" command, it does not support configura- tion of more complex configurations. There is currently no support for enterprise name services such as YP/NIS, NIS+ or LDAP. There is also no support for anything but the global zone.
