sys-unconfig is for changing the hostname - recommended by SUN but not by most administrators I know. It's easier to just vi the files instead of playing around with the whole system that way.

For changing the IP, you would not use sys-unconfig. You would just have to edit maybe 4 files.

Will look out on SunSolve to see if there is anything and post back (if no one else has by then).

See this post for more info on not using sys-unconfig.

CDE in Solaris

I was wondering, if I boot up a Solaris box and the CDE does not come up by default when I log in, does that mean that the box has a GUI at all? If that is the case, where can I download CDE from? I am accustomed to RedHat and Windows, so unfortunately Solaris throws me off a little bit. (1 Reply)

NAME
sys-unconfig - undo a system's configuration SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/sys-unconfig DESCRIPTION
The sys-unconfig command is used to restore a system's configuration to an "as-manufactured" state, ready to be reconfigured again. The system's configuration consists of hostname, Network Information Service (NIS) domain name, timezone, IP address, IP subnet mask, and root password. This operation is the inverse of those performed by the sysidnet(1M), sysidns(1M), and sysidsys(1M) programs run at boot. See sysidtool(1M). sys-unconfig does the following: o Saves current /etc/inet/hosts file information in /etc/inet/hosts.saved. o If the current /etc/vfstab file contains NFS mount entries, saves the /etc/vfstab file to /etc/vfstab.orig. o Restores the default /etc/inet/hosts file. o Removes the default hostname in /etc/hostname.interface files for all interfaces configured when this command is run. To determine which interfaces are configured, run the command 'ifconfig-a'. The /etc/hostname.interface files corresponding to all of the inter- faces listed in the resulting output, with the exception of the loopback interface (lo0), will be removed. o Removes the default domainname in /etc/defaultdomain. o Restores the timezone to PST8PDT in /etc/TIMEZONE. o Disables the Network Information Service (NIS) and Network Information Service Plus (NIS+) if either NIS or NIS+ was configured. o Removes the file /etc/inet/netmasks. o Removes the file /etc/defaultrouter. o Removes the password set for root in /etc/shadow. o Removes the file /etc/.rootkey. o Executes all system configuration applications. These applications are defined by prior executions of a sysidconfig -a application. (See sysidconfig(1M)). When sys-unconfig is run, all system configuration applications are passed one argument, -u. o Removes the file /etc/resolv.conf. o Disables LDAP by removing /var/ldap/ldap_client_cache, /var/ldap/ldap_client_file, /var/ldap/ldap_client_cred, and /var/ldap/cachemgr.log. o Regenerates keys for sshd(1M). When sys-unconfig is finished, it performs a system shutdown. sys-unconfig is a potentially dangerous utility and can only be run by the super user. FILES
