Solaris sys-unconfig and /etc/defaultrouter
One caveat about sys-unconfig:
When running sys-unconfig
on a Solaris 8 system, rebooting, and reconfiguring the system, I was
not prompted for a default gateway. Therefore, the RIP daemon (in.routed) was running after the reboot. In our environment, RIP is not used, so I had to recreate /etc/defaultrouter (for future reboots) and manually add a default route (for the current boot).
# ps -ef | grep route
root 116 1 0 15:31:00
? 0:00 /usr/sbin/in.routed -q
# ls -l /etc/defaultrouter
/etc/defaultrouter: No such file or directory
# echo 192.168.1.1 > /etc/defaultrouter
# route add default 192.168.1.1
