Figure 27–1 shows the site setup for this example.
At this sample site, the conditions are as follows:
SPARC: The engineering group is located on its own subnet. This group uses SPARCstationTM systems for software development.
x86: The marketing group is located on its own subnet. This group uses x86 based systems for running word processors, spreadsheets, and other office productivity tools.
The site uses NIS. The Ethernet addresses, IP addresses, and host names of the systems are preconfigured in the NIS maps. The subnet mask, date and time, and geographic region for the site are also preconfigured in the NIS maps.
The peripheral devices for the marketing systems are preconfigured in the sysidcfg file.
