run sys-unconfig only reset and ask u re-enter your solaris machine values such as ip address, hostname... etc
just like the first time you install solaris the screen pop up asking u those information.

yetalu is correct. This script will only remove all your settings and ask for the new information upon the next bootup. It was made to make it easier for admins and such to reconfigure their network, hostname settings and such instead of manually editing many different files scattered about the system.

Hey all, thanks for the replys. I am not trying to uninstall anything. I just wanted to make sure that running sys-unconfig wouldn't make any impact on the machine. I had to specify my networks dns server with out hurting anything, and was looking for the easiest way possible. Im pretty sure there is a text file somewhere, but I don't know where it is yet. I have purchased two references however, and will be reading those. I have to know Solaris 8 like the back of my hand before July 5th. I have to know how to atleast integrate a solaris box into any network, and will have to know how to set up database/directory services on it aswell. P.S. VNC does exist for Solaris 8 doesn't it? Has any one tried it with any success?
