Before You Configure an IPv4 Network (Task Map)

Before you configure TCP/IP, complete the tasks that are listed in the following table. The table includes a description of what each task accomplishes and the section in the current documentation where the specific steps to perform the task are detailed.

For Instructions
1. Design the network topology.
Determine the physical layout of the network.
2. Obtain a network number from your ISP or Regional Internet Registry (RIR).
Get a registered network number, which enables systems at your site to communicate externally.
3. Plan the IPv4 addressing scheme for the network. If applicable, include subnet addressing.
Use the network number as the basis for your addressing plan.
4. Assemble the network hardware depending on the network topology. Assure that the hardware is functioning properly.
Set up the systems, network media, routers, switches, hubs and bridges that you outlined in the network topology design.
The hardware manuals and Network Topology Overview.
5. Assign IPv4 addresses and host names to all systems in the network.
Assign the IPv4 addresses during Oracle Solaris installation or post installation, in the appropriate files.
6. Run configuration software that is required by network interfaces and routers, if applicable.
Configure routers and multihomed hosts.
7. Determine which name service or directory service your network uses: NIS, LDAP, DNS, or local files.
Configure your selected name service and/or directory service.
8. Select domain names for your network, if applicable.
Choose a domain name for your network and register it with the InterNIC.
