Solaris 8 (Intel Platform Edition) Device Configuration Guide

Postinstallation Configuration

Replacing a Network Card

If you replace your network adapter with one that uses a different network driver, before rebooting the second time, rename the /etc/hostname.olddriver0 file as follows:

# mv /etc/hostname.olddriver0 /etc/hostname.newdriver0

Note -

Any time you add, remove, or replace hardware, run the Configuration Assistant utility.

After renaming the driver, perform a reconfiguration boot for your changes to take effect:

# touch /reconfigure
# reboot
