Net-snmp should now work in an opensolaris non-global zone

While debugging a net-snmp issue a while back, I came across the following error:

error on subcontainer ‘interface container’ insert (-1)

These errors are caused by opensolaris bug #6640675, which causes all interfaces to be assigned an index value of 0 (this leads net-snmp to think there are duplicate interfaces). The fix was just integrated into Nevada, so hopefully the code will be back ported to Solaris 10.

  1. This is definitely causing me a huge headache on both non-global zones and on standalone systems with Solaris 10 installed.

    SNMP won’t start (may be unrelated) but keeps filling up the logs (/var/log/snmpd.log) with “error on subcontainer ‘interface container’ insert (-1)”.

    Hopefully it’s fixed soon. :/
