Resetting the ALOM’s network setting is a little un-intuitive, but it not that hard if you remember that Solaris Sunfire systems (v210, v240, v250, etc.) use the scadm interface to address the eeprom/NVRAM.
cd /usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin ./scadm set netsc_ipaddr 172.16.3.27 ./scadm set netsc_ipnetmask 255.255.0.0 ./scadm set netsc_ipgateway 172.16.0.8
# Check your work
./scadm show | grep netsc netsc_tpelinktest="true” netsc_dhcp="false” netsc_ipaddr="172.16.3.27″ netsc_ipnetmask="255.255.0.0″ netsc_ipgateway="172.16.0.8″
You really need to have tpelinktest=”true” before proceeding.
# Reset the interface and then look at the settings.
./scadm resetrsc ./scadm shownetwork
