help on setting up /etc/rc

I need to setup /etc/rc file on two 10g ports, and they are LACP configured. However, it is not working, I have two obvious issues here:

First, the interface file12345678NAS-88 could not be created, only took the portion of it "file12345678NAS", and although the IP is assoicated, but the connection is not there, and I could not ping it.

Please take a look at it, and any idea what went wrong? Thanks!

Historically interface name size was limited to 15 (or was it 16?) characters on Unix. You most likely hit this limit.

Hello All -

Let me know if this is off-topic...

What can I reference to understand what the /Etc/RC file should look like and how to maintain it?
