sysctl: error: 'net.ipv4.conf.eth0.100.accept_redirects' is an unknown
key
sysctl: error: 'net.ipv4.conf.eth0.100.secure_redirects' is an unknown

cat, does net/ipv4/conf/eth0/mc_forwarding exists too
along with net/ipv4/conf/eth0.100/mc_forwarding?

How do you create vlans? Give exact sequence of commands so I can
reproduce
