Solaris 2.7 Networking Question
Posted on 2001-06-07
I'm a solaris newbie who needs some guidance. I'm an Oracle DBA who's sysadmin is away enjoying himself in Vienna. Predictably enough yesterday one of the disks on a development server here died a death and was replaced by an engineer. He reinstalled Solaris 2.7 and went away happy. He used the same IP address and hostname as had been used before. We had usually connected to this server using a Reflections session over the network. We are now unable to connect over the network. The server in question is a part of a subnet and can be reached by other members of that subnet, but can't be reached from outside of it. According to a guy here who's been trying to help it doesn't appear as if the problem server can see the 'default gateway'. I suspect I have to add a route to this server but that's about as far as my networking knowledge extends (not far eh ?).
I'd very much appreciate any guidence you might have to offer,
