NAME

hostconfig - configure a system's host parameters

SYNOPSIS

/usr/bin/hostconfig -p protocol [ -d ] [ -h ] [ -n ] [ -v ] [ -i interface ] [ -f hostname ]

DESCRIPTION

The hostconfig program uses a network protocol to acquire a machine's host parameters and set these parameters on the system. The program selects which protocol to use based on the argu- ment to the required -p flag. Different protocols may set different host parameters. Currently, only one protocol (bootparams) is defined.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported: -d Enable debug output. -f hostname Run the protocol as if this machine were named host- name. -h Echo the received hostname to stdout, rather than set- ting hostname using the system name directly. -i interface Use only the named network interface to run the proto- col. -n Run the network protocol, but do not set the acquired parameters into the system. -p protocol Run hostconfig using protocol. Currently, only one protocol (bootparams) is available. This option is required. Specifying the -p bootparams option uses the whoami call of the RPC bootparams protocol. This sets the system's hostname, domainname, and default IP router parameters. -v Enable verbose output.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Configuring host parameters with verbose output SunOS 5.8 Last change: 16 Jul 1999 1 Maintenance Commands hostconfig(1M) The following command configures a machine's host parameters using the whoami call of the RPC bootparams protocol with a verbose output. example# hostconfig -p bootparams -v Example 2: Displaying host parameters The following command displays the parameters that would be set using the whoami call of the RPC bootparams protocol. example# hostconfig -p bootparams -n -v Example 3: Configuring host parameters less the system name The following command configures a machine's host parame- ters, less the system name, using the whoami call of the RPC bootparams protocol. example# hostconfig='hostconfig -p bootparams -h'
