      How to Add a Physical Interface After Installation in Solaris 10

      Hi Java Specialist,

      I am trying to setup a network interface with the following steps on a new fresh Solaris 10 installation using the instruction titled How to Add a Physical Interface After Installation in Solaris 10 3/05 ONLY from http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/816-4554/esxhb/index.html:

      1. # ifconfig lo0 plumb up
      2. # ifconfig lo0 10.56.8.101 netmask 255.255.240.0. This was the working Windows DHCP environment prior to installing Solaris
      10 on top of it.
      3. # Added saturn to /etc/hostname.lo0.
      4. # Added 10.56.8.101 to /etc/inet/hosts
      5. # Added 10.56.0.0     255.255.240.0 to /etc/inet/netmasks
      6.# reboot

      However, the following errors kept recurring:

      svcs –xv …. unable to qualify my own domain name,
      failed with exit status 69.

      Any idea on what other steps have I missed? I was hoping to only do step 3 – 6 for the change to apply permanently.

      Many thanks,

      Jack
