The output of Solaris named interfaces and MAC addresses appears. For example:
In the sample output above:
The el000g# entry in the first column refers to the Solaris logical named interface. This first column in the output identifies the logical names assigned by Solaris to the network interfaces.
The ether #:#:#:#:#:# entry in second column (third row) refers to the physical MAC address name of the network port.
The physical MAC address for the Solaris named network interface is e1000g0 is 0:14:4f:c:a1:ee.
This command restores the system configuration to the factory defaults.
Caution - The sys-unconfig(1M) command halts the system and restores the factory settings. Do not run this command unless you are ready to reconfigure your system.
# sys-unconfig WARNING This program will unconfigure your system. It will cause it to revert to a "blank" system - it will not have a name or know about other systems or networks. This program will also halt the system. Do you want to continue (y/n) ?
The system reboots and the configuration script starts.
