    Doc for getting a DHCP Client to Request a Specific Host Name doesn't work

    970833
      following

      [http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23824_01/html/821-1453/eyhuv.html#scrolltoc]

      doesn't seem to work on Solaris 11/11 (x86). After deleting the address with ipadm it seems that the Auto Magic Network config service recreates it per its spec, it just gets a new DHCP address after a few moments. When I run the

      ipadm create-addr -T dhcp -h <hostname> net0/_b command I get the following error

      ipadm: cannot create address object: Invalid argument provided

      I can't find a way to config the hostname using netadm or netcfg.

      thanks
