lancards - doubt

can someone please help me understand what is actually wrong here..
# dladm show-dev
bge0            link: up        speed: 1000  Mbps       duplex: full
bge1            link: unknown   speed: 0     Mbps       duplex: unknown
nxge0           link: up        speed: 1000  Mbps       duplex: full
nxge1           link: up        speed: 1000  Mbps       duplex: full
nxge2           link: up        speed: 1000  Mbps       duplex: full
nxge3           link: up        speed: 1000  Mbps       duplex: full

# ifconfig nxge3 netmask
ifconfig: SIOCGLIFNETMASK: nxge3: no such interface

dladm show-dev is showing physical LAN cards if am not wrong.. i cant even see any other interface apart from bge0 in my ifconfig -a output..
#ifconfig -a
lo0:flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
        inet netmask ff000000
bge0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
        inet xx.xx.xx.xx netmask ffffff80 broadcast xx.xx.xx.xx
        ether 0:21:28:6c:a1:ea

# ifconfig nxge3 plumb
# ifconfig nxge3 up

if this won't work, tell us a little more about the role of this server? cluster? storage?

Thanks Duke,
That worked, so that means unless the interface is plumbed it wont show up in ifconfig -a output...
Thanks Duke thanks a lot..
There is one more thing i want to ask
what is the difference between bge and nxge , is the names differ because they are from different manufacturers???am sorry if my doubt is silly as am just learning ..

the name is a hint to the manufacture... bge is broadcom hardware. the nxge card is (as far as i know) a sun developed card...

The interface name is the driver name plus an index starting from 0. nxge is the name of the network interface embedded in the UltraSPARC T2 chip (Sun Neptune - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
