hi duke,

I have removed one ipaddress now it is saying

# /usr/sbin/zoneadm -z asflxpoc1 boot -s
could not verify net address= physical=ce0: No such device or address
zoneadm: zone asflxpoc1 failed to verify

any info~!

Please post the output of "ifconfig ce0" in the global zone. It's probably not plumbed or doesn't have an IP address. Since you're sharing the NIC with the global zone it should be UP and have an IP address there.

Having two IP's in your zonecfg shouldn't be a problem, they'll just come up as ce0:1 and ce0:2 (or so).

which solaris 10 version is it? please have a look at /etc/release. all versions before update 5 of solaris 10 need the interface plumbed in the global zone.

it looks like tour ce0 interfaces are plugged but not configured (nothing in ifconfig -a)

you need all the /etc/hostname.ce0 /etc/hosts to make it works.
then try ifconfig ce0 plumb
ifconfig ce0 up

Solaris 10 1/06 is rather old. it would be better to load a newer version of solaris. in the next month is the release of update 6. the newer solaris version should fix some of your problems (e.g. no need to plumb the interface in global zone).
