defaultdomain - specify host's domain name




The file /etc/defaultdomain determines a host's domain name for direct
use by the NIS name service. The defaultdomain file is read at boot time
and its contents used by the domainname(8) command. Because of its use
by domainname, defaultdomain is also used by the LDAP service (see
ldap(1)). Under certain, narrow circumstances (see resolv.conf(5)),
because domainname uses defaultdomain, a DNS client can use the contents
of defaultdomain.

The contents of defaultdomain consists of a single line containing a
host's domain name.


uname(1), resolv.conf(5), ldapclient(8), ypbind(8), ypinit(8)


The defaultdomain file is created and modified by Solaris installation
and configuration scripts. Only users knowledgeable of name service
configuration should edit the file.
