    Each time I install Solaris 8 X86, I have the same problem registering
    with DNS services on my internal segment. No other computer has

    It starts with (my) inability to force the system to use DHCP; it
    insists on using RPC, though I specifically chose DHCP in the wizard.
    So I choose manual IP config, followed by the nameservice, which I set
    to DNS, and provide parameters as usual for other systems.

    No matter what I do, it responds with " Unable to find an address for
    'hostname' with the specified DNS configuration.
    I've specified domainname, IP of DNS and tried with/without search

    I'm booting off DC1, choosing the wizard (first entry in the boot menu).

    Kind regards,
