netmasks

In most cases, the netmasks map is created from the /etc/inet/netmasks or /etc/netmasks file. A typical line looks like this:

IP_addressnetmask # comment

For example

192.168.4.0 255.255.252.0
192.168.4.1 255.255.255.0

If you create a netmasks map in Active Directory, you must not include the key as part of the value. For example:

  • Key: 192.168.4.0
  • Value: 255.255.252.0
  • Comment: This is a 22-bit netmask.

This map is only applicable for Solaris.
