Solaris DHCP Administration Guide

Converting dhcptags Entries to inittab Entries

If you previously added entries to your dhcptags file, you must add corresponding entries to the new inittab file. The following example shows how a sample dhcptags entry might be expressed in inittab format.

Suppose you had added the following dhcptags entry for fax machines connected to the network:

128 FaxMchn - IP Fax_Machine

The code 128 means that it must be in the site category, the option name is FaxMchn, the data type is IP.

The corresponding inittab entry might be:

FaxMchn SITE, 128, IP, 1, 1, sdmi

The granularity of 1 and maximum of 1 indicate that one IP address is expected for this option.
