sysidtool(1M)		System Administration Commands		 sysidtool(1M)

       sysidtool,  sysidnet,  sysidns,	sysidsys,  sysidroot, sysidpm -	system






       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  ma-
       chine's	configuration  files, in the kernel, and on the	machine's net-
       work 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  ser-
	     vice.  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  com-
	     pliant,   that  is,  a  new system	model shipped after October 1,

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

       The sysidtool programs attempt to obtain	system configuration  informa-
       tion 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
       preconfiguring  the appropriate configuration information in  the  name
       service databases  or in	the sysidcfg(4)	file.

       To preconfigure the information in the name service databases, you must
       use the name service commands or	the Solstice AdminSuite	tools. See So-
       laris  9	 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

       If  a system has	more than one network interface, you can use sysidtool
       to configure only the primary interface on the system. All other	inter-
       faces on	the system must	be configured 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 power.conf(4).

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

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE	TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWadmap			   |
       |			     |SUNWpmu			   |

       power.conf(4), shadow (4), sysidcfg(4), attributes(5)

       Solaris 9 Installation Guide

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