How to change IP in Solaris machine?
To Change the IP on Solaris we requires edit two files:

1. /etc/hosts
2. /etc/inet/ipnodes

If you are changing network address, you will need to change the router address in the file:
1. /etc/defaultrouter

Changing the hostname now only requires editing these files:

1. /etc/hosts
2. /etc/nodename
3. /etc/hostname.

is the driver name followed by the instance number of the interface. ie. hme0, bge0, ce0, qfe0

You can find all your network interfaces by drivername and instance# by running the following command: prtconf -D | grep network

Note: the following hosts files are no longer used in solaris 10.

Rebooting the computer should bring up the new ip and hostname.

Whoever writes Inappropriate/Vulgar comments to context, generally want to be anonymous …So I hope U r not the one like that?
For lazy logs, u can at least use Name/URL option which doesn’t even require any sign-in, The good thing is that it can accept your lovely nick name also and the URL is not mandatory too.
Thanks for your patience
