How many NICS do I have?

Hi, is there a way in Solaris 8 to determine how many total NIC's say a Sun Sparc box has installed - plumbed or unplumbed - and find out its capable network speeds and MAC address?

I know ifconfig -a but that only shows the plumbed and used interfaces.

Try the following

prtconf -D | grep network

You should also be able to do this:
ifconfig -a plumb

This will plumb all available interfaces. You can later unplumb ones that you do not need.
