What is the proper way to configure a standalone non-networked
Solaris 2.x system ?
This is a SPARC workstation that has the standard ethernet
interface. However, the interface is not connected to anything.
As far as I can tell, this is not addressed in the
sys admin answerbook.
One possibility is to not have an /etc/hostname.le0 file
and to "route add hostname localhost 0".
Are there any problems with that ? (it appears to
cause /usr/dt/bin/dtcm to hang).
Is there a preferable configuration for such a system ?
Does the recommendation change if the system will
occasionally be "networked" using PPP (dynamic address) ?
