Create Driver Instance Files (Oracle Solaris 10)
Use this procedure to configure the network host files permanently. The new settings
will be restored at each reboot.
- Create a file named /etc/hostname.igb# for each igb(7D) interface.
where # is the interface's instance number. In the new files, only insert a text
hostname, then save and exit.
- Edit the /etc/hosts file to include an IP address and host name for
each igb(7D) interface (that is, for each /etc/hostname.igb# file).
- Boot Oracle Solaris 10 OS.
Now the igb(7D) interfaces will be plumbed up automatically when you boot.
