New to Solaris - no network
01/01/2018 14:54
Hi there, I'm used to admin AIX boxes and wanted to give Solaris 10 a try. I set up the x86 distro onto a ProLiant 1850R but got no network. scanpci tells me there is a Netelligent network adapter but I have no clue how to set it up. On AIX we have something called smitty that can be used for administration tasks when one does not remember the command. Is there something similar on Solaris. I tried smc but this is rubbish. It only shows serial interfaces in the hardware section.

Now I set up networking including default gateway, hosts, and resolver, there is something strange, again. 'nslookup www.sun.com' states the right DNS servers and returns the correct IP address. 'ping www.sun.com' gives me unknown host ?!? Nonetheless, if I put the IP address into my browser I get response from sun.com.

Are there some good hints, too? Patrick
