Hello Everyone,

i want to change the IP Address, netmask, default gateway addresses on the solaris server. i dont want to do sys-unconfig and change the information. I want to just use the OS files and change the information. Can someone tell me which files i need to change for this information?

i have checked that /etc/defaultrouter is used for gateway and /etc/netmasks is used for setting netmask. but how to change the ip, broadcast addresses permanently using files?

  You still need to reboot the box after changing the files.
