    Change IP Address on Solaris 10

    Hello!

    How can I run on Solaris 10, the IP address change?

    I found/etc/hostname. "interface" (as is the interface name in it) then in /etc/hosts file under this name, the IP address change.

    Is it accurate or is there any other way under Solaris 10?


    Thank you,

    You can change the IP Address by using ifconfig command.

    Code:
    ifconfig xl0 inet 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255
    To change the IP in the hosts file :

    Code:
    vi /etc/hosts
    To change the IP address :

    IP - /etc/hosts
    Netmask - /etc/netmasks
    Gateway - /etc/defaultrouter
    IP (again) - /etc/inet/ipnodes
    DNS Servers - /etc/resolv.conf
    This will resolve your problem.

    To change change IP Address without reboot :

    1. Edit ->
    Code:
    /etc/hosts and  /etc/inet/ipnodes files
    2. Restart network :

    Code:
    # svcadm restart network/physical
    3. To ensure that IP address has been changed,

    Code:
    /etc/netmasks

    Note : If you are not using IPV6 just removing the ipnodes file will cause the hosts file to assume it's previous function in setting the IP address.
