Solaris 8 (Intel Platform Edition) Device Configuration Guide

Configuring Two or More Cards

Because the 3C589 card is not supported during Solaris installation, you must update network configuration files before one can be used as a network interface.

  1. Create a /etc/hostname.pcelx# file (where # is a socket number) to specify the host name to be associated with this interface.

  2. Add an IP address for the new host name to the file /etc/inet/hosts.

  3. Ensure that the associated network is listed in /etc/inet/netmasks.

  4. Ensure that the Name Service Switch /etc/nsswitch.conf configuration file includes the network and local services you need.

  5. Reboot the system.

    Note -

    This process is described in System Administration Guide, Volume 3.
