Appendix A: System Configuration Files

This appendix presents the following information:

  • Sample /.profile and /.login startup scripts

  • Sample /etc/inet/hosts file

Output From /.profile and /.login Files

The following is an example of the /.profile configuration file:

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

The following is an example of the /.login configuration 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


The preceding 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.

The following is an example of the /.login configuration 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


The preceding is an example only. It shows standard hostname entries for the SunPlex platform. Note that the output includes two logical host entries (lh-hanfs and lh-apache), plus the terminal concentrator (tc). Verify that your configuration matches the actual site-specific configuration requirements.
