Adding a Subnet to a Network (Task Map)

If you are changing from a network that does not use a subnet to a network that does use a subnet, perform the tasks in the following task map.

Note - The information in this section applies to IPv4 subnets only. For information on planning IPv6 subnets, refer to Preparing the Network Topology for IPv6 Support and Creating a Numbering Scheme for Subnets.

The following table lists different tasks for adding a subnet to the current network. 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. Determine if your network topology requires subnets.
Decide on the new subnet topology, including where to locate routers and hosts on the subnets.
2. Assign the IP addresses with the new subnet number to the systems to become members of the subnet.
Configure IP addresses that use the new subnet number, either during Oracle Solaris installation or later, in the /etc/hostname.interface file.
3. Configure the network mask of the subnet on all prospective systems in the subnet.
Modify the /etc/inet/netmasks file, if you are manually configuring network clients. Or, supply the netmask to the Oracle Solaris installation program.
4. Edit the network databases with the new IP addresses of all systems in the subnet.
Modify /etc/inet/hosts and, for Solaris 10 11/06 and earlier releases,/etc/inet/ipnodes, on all hosts to reflect the new host addresses.
5. Reboot all systems.
