Solaris 8 (SPARC Platform Edition) 10/00 Release Notes Update

Cannot Specify an Alternate Network Interface to Use During System Identification on Network Gateway Systems (4302896)

A network gateway is used to communicate with other networks. A gateway system contains multiple network interface adapters and each adapter connects with a different network.

If you use the Solaris 8 10/00 Installation CD to install the Solaris 8 10/00 operating environment on a gateway system, Solaris Web Start 3.0 uses the primary interface to gather system information. You cannot instruct Solaris Web Start 3.0 to use an alternate network interface to gather information for system identification.

Workaround: To specify another interface for gathering system information, choose one of the following workarounds.
