nca.if(4)                        File Formats                        nca.if(4)



NAME
       nca.if - the NCA configuration file that specifies physical interfaces

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/nca/nca.if

DESCRIPTION
       Specify the physical interfaces for which the Solaris Network Cache and
       Accelerator ("NCA") feature will be configured in the nca.if configura-
       tion  file.  List the physical interfaces in the file, one per line. To
       configure NCA to listen on all physical interfaces present on the  sys-
       tem  backed  by  a hostname.{interface_name}, then list only an asterik
       ("*") in nca.if.

       When the ncakmod(1) initialization  script  is  invoked  during  system
       boot, it will attempt to configure each physical interface specified in
       the nca.if file by using ncaconfd(1M).  Note  that  there  must  be  an
       accompanying  hostname.{interface_name} file and an entry in /etc/hosts
       for the contents of hostname.{interface_name}.

       You must reboot in order to implement changes to the nca.if file.

EXAMPLES
   x86
       Example 1: nca.if on x86

       The following is an example of an nca.if file that would be used on  an
       x86 system:

       iprb1
       iprb6
       iprb8


   SPARC
       Example 2: nca.if on SPARC

       The  following  is an example of an nca.if file that would be used on a
       SPARC system:

       hme2
       hme3
       hme4


   All Platforms
       Example 3: Configuring NCA to Listen on All Physical Interfaces

       The following example shows the contents of an nca.if file  that  would
       be  used  to configure either platform to listen on all physical inter-
       faces present on the system:

       *


FILES
       /etc/nca/nca.if         Lists the physical interfaces on which NCA will
                               run.



       /etc/hostname.{}{0-9}   Lists all physical interfaces configured on the
                               server.



       /etc/hosts              Lists  all  host  names  associated  with   the
                               server.  Entries  in  this file must match with
                               entries in  /etc/hostname.{}{0-9}  for  NCA  to
                               function.
