Why is a configuration error message prompted when an S series or E series switches use the network command in RIP to advertise network segment routes

Q: Why is a configuration error message prompted when the network command in RIP is used to advertise network segment routes?
A: RIP is based on natural network segments. Though RIP version 2 supports other subnet masks, natural network segments must be used for configuration. For example, if the IP address of VLANIF100 is set to 1.1.1.1/24, the network 1.0.0.0 command must be used for configuration.
