Newbie: how to start using IPv4 with new Solaris 10 installation (T5120)

Good afternoon,
A collegue has re-installed Solaris 10 on my machine, and then returned home (other end of the world), he has left me with a machine that does not seem to support IPv4 anymore:
While launching "traceroute <default router>", I get following error message:
traceroute: can't find any IPv4 network interfaces
I have already modified /etc/default/inet_type ("DEFAULT_IP=IP_VERSION4")
I have already modified /etc/default/nss (I have uncommented the line "SORT_ADDRS=FALSE")
=> I have copied the last actions from another machine that is working fine.

Is there a general manual that describes how to prepare a Solaris 10 machine (Sun Fire T5120) for IPv4 usage?
