[rescue] Follow-Up : Changing IP address in Solaris 10

excuse me ...

Read the man page to sys-unconfig and al what it does ....
Why do I need to change my root password to change one of the IP's of a
system ?
By the same token why don't reeinstall the whole system again ?

I stick to the changing files method !

I usually just do sys-unconfig. Doesn't take too long and makes sure all
the appropriate files get updated.
