defaultdomain(4)                 File Formats                 defaultdomain(4)



NAME
       defaultdomain - specify host's domain name

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/defaultdomain

DESCRIPTION
       The  file /etc/defaultdomain determines a host's domain name for direct
       use by the NIS and NIS+ name services. The defaultdomain file  is  read
       at  boot  time  and  its  contents  used by the domainname(1M) 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(4)), 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.

SEE ALSO
       nis+(1),   uname(1),   ldapclient(1M),    nisclient(1M),    ypbind(1M),
       ypinit(1M), resolv.conf(4)

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