this is how


the file you are looking for is not there in solaris 8 intel base this when your first install so.. this is what you do man..

touch /etc/resolv.conf
vi resolv.conf
nameserver x.x.x.x
namerserver x.x.x.x

This for it to work.. you need to go into the /etc/nsswitch.conf file and by the host: type in dns... THis should work..

If there any more question just make post... Happy NEW year..
