Hm... I think what you need is a dns resolver configuration.

Edit /etc/resolv.conf and add the IP address of your internal (or external) DNS server (ask your admin for the IP address).

Sample:

/etc/resolv.conf:

domainname  yourdomainname.com
nameserver  x.x.x.x
nameserver   y.y.y.y

Replace x.x.x.x and y.y.y.y with the ip addresses of your dns servers.

Test: nslookup www.google.com

Regards
Kurt

I am trying to install a Real-time subsystem, post which the ORBacus Naming Service 'nameserv' should run automatically on the Solaris system. However, I dint have any luck with it. Moreover the file /etc/resolv.conf does not exist.

to be more precise, I installed a reporting component called OA on CMS server (Call Monitoring System, Avaya) which runs on Solaris. This should have started the service 'nameserv'. But it is not running. Due to this, I am not able to install CMS subsystem on OA server. It gives me a message that subsystem cannot be administered at this time. If I narrow down the issue, then I would ask - how can I start a service on a solaris system and keep it running?

This has nothing to do with DNS.  DNS servers run under a daemon called named, not nameserv.

Sounds like you need to find out what directory that library file (libOBNamingService.so.4.0.5) is in, then add that directory to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable in the profile for whatever user ID is used to start the application.  If you can't locate the file anywhere on the system, that would certainly explain why it's reporting that there's "no such file or directory".  :)  It is quite weird that the initial CMS application installation didn't take care of that, though.
