/etc/dfs/dfstab

By the way, there is no such thing as Solaris 5.5, there was SunOS 5.5, which is also known as Solaris 2.5. Regardless of the whole versioning thing, any NFS exported filesystems are maintained in the above file.

Hey, thanks for the information. I start up the machine, and it clearly states SunOS 5.5, I just typed in Solaris. But, this means alot. Thanks for the information. I just pulled off the installation of Solaris 8, I found the file the hard way. Im on a dead line, and this was one of my many attempts to find information on backing up a Sun box. Its an older box, Ultra1, with 167Mhz 32bit, 64Mb ram, 2GB SCSI HDD. Havne't had much experience with them, but with in a 5 hour time frame, i've learned (by force) quite a bit about them. For example, DSIMM. Never seen or heard of it before today. Openwin. Never used it, heard of it before though. dfstab, basically figured I would open any text files I felt were related to either networking or mounting file systems. CSH as opposed to BASH. I think it was csh anyways. Now running Solaris 8, purchased it for $20.00 through Sun, and working on CDE. Now to see if I can get my CA to install underneath it, and my HSM to be recognized by my CA.
P.S. Do you know of any good references, as in text books, that I might have good luck with? Thanks very much for the reply.

Good _acurate_ references aside from the docs.sun.com website are hard to come by for Solaris. I have found multiple errors in several of the books that I have read based on Solaris. But I guess they are better than nothing and besides you find a list of corrections usually on the publishers website somewhere.

I personally like downloading the pdf's from the Sun docs website and using those.

Hey, I have another question. I am trying to get this sun box out to the internet. I am looking for either a text file where I could specify the DNS, Gateway, and static ip, or if there is a utility like netconfig. I tried sys-unconfig, and it didn't seem to solve the problem. I would prefer a text file. Again, thank you for any help you can provide me.

If you take a look at the man page for sys-unconfig it will tell you what files it updates and changes. http://www.dimi.uniud.it/cgi-bin/man...ys-unconfig+1M

Wow, you guys are fast. Thank you for that! Tomorrow, I will have to configure those files. Like I mentioned before, I am on a dead line, and I can't express in words just how helpful all of this is.
