Terminal settings on solaris

I am getting the following error when try to use vi

vt100: Unknown terminal type
Visual needs addressable cursor or upline capability
:

I have checked the TERM variable which is set to vt100. What could be the problem. This is on solaris 2.8 and i am doing telnet.

hmmm.....

don't know the problem....
I always do that:
(bash)
export TERM=vt100
(sh)
TERM=vt100
export TERM

what are you using?
perhaps you could set
TERM=xterm

greetings Pre▀y

Thank you pressy. I have found out the problem. Actually v directory in /usr/share/lib/terminfo is missing. I have copied this from other machine and now is working fine..
