Solaris 2.1 x86 OEM:Standalone -> network ?

Post by Piotr Szczepan » Thu, 01 Jul 1993 04:24:12


        a two weeks ago I installed Solaris 2.1 x86 OEM on DELL/ME as standalone station
without lan card.

Now I installed SMC WD8013 card and I want to connect my machine to a network.
what I did ?
                1) I added in /etc/hosts line:     dell    loghost
                2) ran boot whit option -r

                but it still works as standalone :
        #ping dell                      return ICMP error

        #ifconfig -a            show only lo0 loopback interface

        My question:

                What I must do to move my machine from standalone to (for example) server
whitout reinstallation all system ?
