Network Configuration


The host name must be different from any other host name of any other interface,
for example: /etc/hostname.nxge0 and /etc/hostname.nxge1 cannot share
the same host name.

The following example shows the /etc/hostname.nxgenumber file required for
a system called zardoz that has a Sun x4 PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet driver

3. Create an appropriate entry in the /etc/hosts file for each active nxge


For example:

Setting Up a 10-Gigabit Ethernet
Network on a Diskless Client System

Before you can boot and operate a diskless client system across a 10-Gigabit Ethernet
network, you must first install the 10-Gigabit Ethernet software packages into the
root directory of the diskless client. You can find the 10-Gigabit Ethernet software
packages at the following web site:


Refer to the Solaris Advanced Installation Guide and the System Administration Guide
for more information about installing and administering diskless client systems.

Note –

The Solaris x86 version of the operating system do not support diskless


# cat /etc/hostname.nxge0


# cat /etc/hostname.nxge1
