This is a bit off topic, but I am getting nowhere trying to set up a tagged VLAN on a Solaris 9 box that I am using as a storage node.
My network manager changed this server's connection from a regular
connection to a tagged VLAN connection. It started off with a ce3
interface in "ifconfig -a" but I had to drop that and I am trying to
replace it with
/sbin/ifconfig ce1600000 plumb ipaddress netmask
broadcast brdaddress up
The /etc/hosts file already contains the appropriate entry for this
VLAN from when the IP address was assigned to ce3 and the /etc/
netmasks file also contains the relevant entry from before. I also
created a file
/etc/hostname.ce1600000 with the name of the host in it.

Yet when I issue the above command, I get an error that says

ifconfig: SIOCLIFNAME for ip: ce1600000: no such interface

What am I doing wrong? My network administrator and I have been working on this for the past hour and googling only tells me information that I already know.
Any tips will be greatly appreciated.
