Question Detecting Network Card in Solaris10

I have an E420 server that has a TPE Slot / NIC installed.

However there is no interface file installed eg /etc/hostname.hme0 or equivalent.

I have placed a private ip entry int the hosts file to accompany the loop back entry i.e.

127.0.0.1 localhost
172.16.0.10 loghost se420

/etc/inet/netmask has no entries and /etc/ethers does not exist

when I try ifconfig -a, the protocol is shown as IPV4 and I get a successful loop back test on 127.0.0.1

However when I try a traceroute to se420, I get the message "Can't find any IPV4 network interfaces"

I have tried a reconfiguration reboot using reboot -- -r but this has made no difference.

I should point out that during these tests, I have not actually connected the TPE port to any network device eg router, switch or even via crossover cable.

Any ideas as to how I get this network up & running.

try "dmesg | grep net" to find what interfaces are available in your system

Just found out that the server was installed with no network options. Used sys-unconfig to rectify this Smilie
