The procedure for renaming a Solaris 10 local zone's hostname is not well documented. By trial and error, Sun support and I worked out the following.
When setting up a new local zone, "unsetenv TMPDIR" or a number of key packages will fail to install in the new zone. "hostname newHostName" and make sure /etc/nodename, /etc/inet/hosts, and /etc/inet/ipnodes have the appropriate entries for the new hostname. "zlogin -C newZone" to allow sysIDtool to complete. # ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key -N "" Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (//.ssh/id_rsa): /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key # ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key -N "" Generating public/private dsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (//.ssh/id_dsa): /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key Kill any existing sshd and run the ssh start method /lib/svc/method/sshd start Fix /etc/nsswitch.conf (defaults to bogus NIS stuff). --Bruce <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> This message posted from opensolaris.org _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
