Solaris and dhcp

Hi all,

To set a Solaris box as a dhcp client (assuming the ethernet device is
hme0), there are two ways:

  1) Create an empty /etc/hostname.hme0 and /etc/dhcp.hme0

  2) # ifconfig hme0 plumb
     # ifconfig hme0 dhcp start

However, this sets the hostname to unknown unless you specify something
like the following in the dhcp server config.

  host netra {
    hardware ethernet 08:00:20:da:63:96;
    option host-name "netra";
