Need Help Changing IP address

Post by Brian Chil » Thu, 05 Nov 1992 03:05:00



I am having HUGE problems trying to change the IP address for
my RS-6000.

Here's what I'm doing:
1) I go into 'smit chinet', and change the IP address
2) smit reports the change succeeded, so I exit smit
3) I do a netstat -i which reports the new address
4) Reboot
5) netstat -i shows the old address!

Is there something I'm missing or forgetting to do?

Thanks in advance,
Brian

Are you sure that you DO NOT USE Berkely-style inet initialization?? (i.e., no
rc.bsdnet enabled or laying around in /etc). When I configured a RS6000 the
first, I (more used to Suns) enabled the SMIT entry and had a happy evening
with lots of reboots until I realized what that means. Probably you also have
to change this host's enrty in /etc/hosts.

I have a system up and running (rather, it was).  We went through a network
migration and moved from one network to another.  How do I reconfigure my
system to get onto the new network.  I have modiefied hostname.hme0, hosts,
defaultdomain, nodename, & netmasks  in /etc.

This is a Sun ultra 5/10 and runs Solaris 8.  Is there a tool or something?

Please help.
