Virtual switch networking in LDOM error

Hi All,

I am trying to create virtual switches for 10 Gbe interfaces and when I try to bind the resource to the domain, I get the following warning:

root@ebsprdb1 # ldm bind-domain vmprdb1
Mar 11 15:28:54 ebsprdb1 vsw: WARNING: vsw6: Failed to programmacaddr,vid(0:14:4f:f8:23:c5, 0) err=6
Mar 11 15:28:54 ebsprdb1 vsw: WARNING: vsw7: Failed to programmacaddr,vid(0:14:4f:fb:60:5c, 0) err=6

I am able to see the devices in the Guest Domain. Is it safe to ignore the messages?

I used the following commands:

root@ebsprdb1 # dladm show-phys
LINK MEDIA STATE SPEED DUPLEX DEVICE
net1 Ethernet unknown 0 unknown igb1
net0 Ethernet up 1000 full igb0
net3 Ethernet unknown 100 full igb3

root@ebsprdb1 # ldm add-vsw net-dev=net16 primary-vsw16 primary
root@ebsprdb1 # ldm add-vsw net-dev=net33 primary-vsw33 primary

root@ebsprdb1 # ldm add-vnet vnet16 primary-vsw16 vmprdb1
root@ebsprdb1 # ldm add-vnet vnet33 primary-vsw33 vmprdb1
