Configure the Network Host Files (Oracle Solaris 10)

Use this procedure to configure the network host files dynamically on the command line. At reboot, the settings will revert.

  1. Create a file named /etc/hostname.igb# for each igb(7D) interface.

    where # is the igb(7D) interface instance number you plan to use.

    For example, to bring up igb0 at boot, create a file called /etc/hostname.igb0, where 0 is the number of the igb(7D) interface. If the instance number were 1, the file name would be /etc/hostname.igb1. The /etc/hostname.igb# file must contain the host name for the appropriate igb(7D) interface.

  2. Get the igb(7D) instances.
    # dladm show-dev

    The output should include lines similar to the following:

    igb0        link: up      speed: 1000     Mbps duplex: full
    nge0        link: up      speed: 1000     Mbps duplex: full
    nge1        link: down    speed: 0        Mbps duplex: unknown
    igb1        link: up      speed: 1000     Mbps duplex: full
    igb2        link: up      speed: 1000     Mbps duplex: full
  3. Use the ifconfig(1M) command to set up the igb(7D) interfaces.

    Your ifconfig command might look similar to the following:

    # ifconfig igb0 plumb ip-address netmask broadcast + up
