     system configuration








     sysidtool is a suite of five programs that configure  a  new
     system,   or  one  that  has  been  unconfigured  with  sys-
     unconfig(1M).  The sysidtool programs run  automatically  at
     system  installation,  or  during  the  first  boot  after a
     machine has been successfully unconfigured.

     These programs have no effect  except  at  such  times,  and
     should never be run manually.

     The sysidtool programs set up the appropriate information in
     the machine's configuration files, in the kernel, and on the
     machine's network interface. The following  list  shows  the
     available commands and the information for which each of the
     commands lists.

     sysidnet: network configuration
           Machine's  default  locale.  Machine's  console  type.
           Machine's host name. Machine's IP address.

     sysidns:  Name Service configuration
           Name service choice: NIS, NIS+, DNS,  LDAP,  or  none.
           Machine's  IP  subnet  mask (if no NIS/NIS+ server can
           automatically be located on the machine's sub-network.
           Domain  name  for chosen name service. Hostname and IP
           address of name server(s). DNS search list  (DNS  name
           service only)

     sysidsys: miscellaneous system configuration
           Machine's IP subnet mask (if an  NIS/NIS+  server  was
           automatically  located  on the machine's sub-network).
           Machine's time zone. Date and time.

     sysidroot: control superuser information
           Machine's root password.

     sysidpm: Power Management configuration
           Auto-shutdown   confirmation   if   the    system   is
           Energystar-V2  compliant,  that is, a new system model
           shipped after October 1, 1995.

     sysidconfig: host or platform-specific configuration
           This command controls specification and  execution  of
           custom  configuration applications that may  be speci-
           fied for a particular host or a  particular  platform.
           See sysidconfig(1M).

     The sysidtool programs attempt to obtain  system  configura-
     tion  information  from  various name service databases, for
     example, NIS, or from the  sysidcfg(4)  file,  and  you  are
     prompted  to  provide the information if it cannot be found.
     However, you can avoid one or more of the prompts by precon-
     figuring   the  appropriate configuration information in the
     name service databases  or in the sysidcfg(4) file.

     To preconfigure the information in the  name  service  data-
     bases,  you  must  use the name service commands or the Sol-
     stice AdminSuite tools.  See  Solaris  9  9/04  Installation
     Guide  for more details about how to preconfigure the system
     configuration information.

     The machine's configuration information is  set  up  in  its
     /etc and /var files.

     If a system has more than one network interface, you can use
     sysidtool  to  configure  only  the primary interface on the
     system. All other interfaces on the system must  be  config-
     ured manually.

     You cannot use the name service databases or the sysidcfg(4)
     file  to suppress the Power Management configuration prompt.
     However,  you  can  suppress  it  by  creating  either   the
     /autoshutdown  or  /noautoshutdown  file before installation
     reboot. Accordingly, the auto-shutdown feature  is  silently
     configured.  The  /autoshutdown or /noautoshutdown files are
     removed by sysidpm before it exits.







           password file. See passwd(4).

           shadow password file. See shadow(4).








           Power    Management    configuration     file.     See

           If this file is  present  during  system  reboot,  the
           sysidpm program will be run. This file will be removed
           by sysidpm.

     NIS+ might not  be  supported  in  future  releases  of  the
     SolarisTM  Operating Environment. Tools to aid the migration
     from NIS+ to LDAP are available in the Solaris  9  operating
     environment.      For      more      information,      visit
