I found out today that if you're using smaller than a /24, NIM will fail to accept your host into the subnet.

I had an "ent" definition with snm 255.255.255.0. The IP was 192.168.1.17, network was .0, gateway .1.

I redefined this as 255.255.255.127, and when adding it to the master, it said that .17 was not a part of the .0 network.

What a strange, and lame limitation.

UPDATE And it was brought to my attention what my error was. For a subnet mask, it would be .128, not .127. I was mixing up the oddness of 255 plus broadcast address. *sigh*

I M SMRT.
