DNS Registration of Solaris into Windows DNS

Hi Experts,

I am completely new to Solaris.

I need to register FQDN DNS name for Solaris system into Microsoft windows DNS running on windows 2003.

What command or steps do I run?

I created a forward lookup zone in DNS called mydomain.local and I want my solaris system to be called "solaris1" so I want to setup Solaris so that it registers the DNS address solaris1 into mydomain.local zone. So that we can access the solaris system using solaris1.mydomain.local

Thanks

Did you specify the hostname when you installed Solaris?

If not, you'll need to edit

/etc/hosts
/etc/hostname.xxx (where xxx is the name of your network card)
/etc/nodename
/etc/inet/ipnodes

or are you asking, how to set the default DNS lookup to append a domain?  If so, add

search mydomain.local

to /etc/resolv.conf
