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 con-
     taining 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.
