Appendix A: System Configuration Files

This appendix presents the following information:

  • Sample /.profile and /.login startup scripts

  • Sample /etc/inet/hosts

Output From /.profile and /.login Files

The following example configuration files are referenced in this module.

Sample /.profile File

# root ksh environment settings
export TERM stty Prompt PATH MANPATH
umask 022

Sample /.login File

# The root csh environment settings
setenv TERM vt220
setenv stty istrip
set prompt = 'bin/hostname'%
setenv PATH /usr/bin:/usr/ucb:/etc:/sbin:/usr/sbin:
setenv MANPATH /usr/dt/man:/usr/man:/usr/openwin/share/man:
umask 022


Discussing shells and their usage can be highly controversial. The above scripts have been written as generic as possible. You are welcome to add to the scripts or not use them at all, however, keep in mind that you will have to troubleshoot any errors the shell scripts create.

Sample /etc/inet/hosts File

# more /etc/inet/hosts
# Internet host table    localhost
129.153.xx.xxx clustadm loghost
129.153.xx.xxx clustnode1 
129.153.xx.xxx clustnode2 
129.153.xx.xxx lh-hanfs
129.153.xx.xxx lh-apache 
129.153.xx.xxx tc


Example only. Shows standard hostname entries for the SunPLEX. Note the output includes our two logical host entries ( 'lh-xxx' ), plus the terminal concentrator (tc). Verify your configuration matches actual site-specific configuration requirements.
