I have not found an easy way to force the installation program to configure all local networking files if the "Naming Services" section fails.
For example, if you select the DNS naming service and the machine you are configuring is not entered in DNS, the installation process will skip this section.
This file should contain one entry, the full qualified domain name of the administrative domain to which the local host's network belongs.
You can supply this name to the Solaris installation program or edit the file at a later date. This file contains the host names and IP addresses of the primary network interface, other network interfaces attached to the machine, and any other network addresses that the machine must know about.
passwd: files group: files hosts: files ipnodes: files networks: files protocols: files rpc: files ethers: files netmasks: files bootparams: files publickey: files # At present there isn't a 'files' backend for netgroup; the system will # figure it out pretty quickly, and won't use netgroups at all.
netgroup: files automount: files aliases: files services: files sendmailvars: files printers: user files auth_attr: files prof_attr: files project: files# # /etc/nsswitch.dns: # # An example file that could be copied over to /etc/nsswitch.conf; it uses # DNS for hosts lookups, otherwise it does not use any other naming service.
passwd: files group: files # You must also set up the /etc/file for DNS name # server lookup. hosts: files dns ipnodes: files # Uncomment the following line and comment out the above to resolve # both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses from the ipnodes databases.
Note that # IPv4 addresses are searched in all of the ipnodes databases before # searching the hosts databases.
netgroup: files automount: files aliases: files services: files sendmailvars: files printers: user files auth_attr: files prof_attr: files project: files# /etc/nsswitch.nis: # # An example file that could be copied over to /etc/nsswitch.conf; it # uses NIS (YP) in conjunction with files.
# the following two lines obviate the " " entry in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
Credentials have been added for the entries in thehosts and ipnodes and passwd table(s).
OK...populating auto_master table from file /var/nisfiles/auto_master...adding standard key-value table auto_master...adding /var/nisfiles/auto_master to table auto_master.org_dir.0 entries added/updated......
Before turning this option on, consult # the Network Administration Guide for more details on using IPv6.
