The NFS version 4 domain can now be defined during the installation of the Solaris OS. In releases prior to Solaris 10 8/07, the NFS domain name was defined during the first system reboot after installation.
The NFSv4 domain name feature affects installation of the OS as follows:
The sysidtool command includes an enhanced sysidnfs4 program. The sysidnfs4 program now runs during the installation process to determine whether an NFSv4 domain has been configured for the network.
During an interactive installation, the user is provided with the default NFSv4 domain name that is automatically derived from the OS. The user can accept this default. Or, the user can specify a different NFSv4 domain.
As part of a Solaris JumpStartTM installation, a new keyword is available in the sysidcfg file. The user can now assign a value for the NFSv4 domain by using the new keyword, nfs4_domain.
For more information about this new keyword, see the sysidcfg(4) man page. This man page also provides an example of how to use the new nfs4_domain keyword.
For more information about the NFSv4 domain name configuration, see the System Administration Guide: Network Services.
