Sun Solaris 10 and IP Address Change
Posted on 2008-10-31
I was given a Sun Solaris 10 Blade server and it is fully functional on its own. Well, it seems that way. The problem is that the IP address for it is different than the range I am using . For example, this Sun server is using 192.168.0.1 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. My IP range is within 192.168.1.x. The last two octets are different. My primarily network is Windows 2003 Server based and this is the only Unix box I have.
I've connected this box to my switch, but I cannot ping it from a workstation. I thought I would be able to ping it but no dice. From the Sun desktop, I cannot find anything that allows me to manage the network card or IP address. I need to change the ip address for this machine, and I might even have to rename it. I need to be careful, though. The email system called SunOne is installed on this machine, too.
I am looking for help on how to modify the IP address for this machine, and even rename the machine if I have to. Is there a GUI to do this? I cannot find one and I haven't a clue what Unix or Linux commands to use. I don't even know what commands to use just to see what the settings are or what the machine name is.
