check the IP of the DNS server

put those ip /etc/resolv.conf

vi /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver (example)

cp /etc/nsswitch.dns /etc/nsswitch.conf

svcadm enable /network/dns/server

ur done almost.

this step isn't necessary unless you want to configure a dns server!

if you have a dns server on your network, use that address in /etc/resolv.conf
echo "nameserver <dns_ip>" > /etc/resolv.conf

otherwise use your default route address.
