HP-UX: Configure The New Lan Card [ HP-UX Networking]

HP-UX unix desktop is very sensitive to networking changes such as hostname and IP address. I learned this hard way. First, you need to kill HP-UX desktop (CDE) with the following command. Open a terminal and login as root user.

# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc stop
Next, open the /etc/rc.config.d/netconf file and make changes to HOSTNAME and IP address. Save and close the file.
# vi /etc/rc.config.d/netconf
Sample config:

 
HOSTNAME=myhpux         
INTERFACE_NAME[0]=lan0
IP_ADDRESS[0]=202.54.10.20  
SUBNET_MASK[0]=255.255.255.0  
BROADCAST_ADDRESS[0]=""
DHCP_ENABLE[0]="0"
 

Finally, you need to update the /etc/hosts file with correct IP and hostname:
# vi /etc/hosts
Reboot the system:
# shutdown -ry 0
