No. At any rate, I've never examined this, since it isn't necessary - as
far as I'm concerned.

The FQDN of the localhost IP (normally is "localhost" . What
could be simpler? The only trouble is, that "localhost" isn't a FQDN -
it *would* be, if it were "localhost." (note the dot).

That's what I was doing my utmost best to try and explain to you, but it
seems I wasn't successful.

Reesolv.conf is there to tell you what your name server(s) is/are. Also,
on Solaris (SYSVR4) what order files/DNS should be consulted for the
resolver. Are you sure you're not getting your IP number from a DHCP
server? That's the only reason I can think that your resolv.conf would
alter on boot up; unless you also have your nameserver in an underlying
RC file. I don't know Solaris that ell as far as networking is

Actually, that's what I meant by "an RC file".

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
