... first of all, I'm quite a Solaris newbie. I'm an Oracle DBA and
know basically how to set up a Solaris 8 box so that I can naturally
run Oracle on it. So, here are my questions:
I decided to finally increase speed from Sol-8 to Sol-9 on my Blade
150. This machine is attached (via a switch) to my DSL modem/router, a
ZyXEL Prestige 650-R.
When I installed Solaris 9, I was offered networking options. I chose
to use DHCP and DNS. I supplied the IP addresses of my ISP's DNS
servers as requested by the installer and the computer is assigned the
name DHCPPC3 from the ZyXEL. I created my user and can
telnet/rlogin/ssh to that user from my other computers using the IP
address assigned to DHCPPC3. So far, so good. But how can I give it a
name it keeps? My Linux and Mac machines will keep their name, no
matter what. The Blade always gets the name from the ZyXEL which may
change of course and is not the name I want.
Also, I supplied the networking information, but why isn't it able to
resolve names? I don't need 100% internet features there, but it would
be great if I could for example download the latest jumbo patch
directly from Sun onto the Sun.
Last but not least, each an every window has this extremely ugly
language bar attachted at the bottom edge. Is there any way to get rid
of this thing? This thing alone can be a reason to go back to Solaris
Also, is there a Solaris 9 FAQ around?
Thanks very much in advance.
