You may need to change the hostid for licensing issues
when moving a software from one machine to another one.
Here is the procedure:
2. Save the original hostid to somewhere. (just for safety)
# hostid >/etc/hostid_orig
3. set permission of hid_solaris2 as 755
# chmod 755 /var/hid_solaris2
(I assume that hid_solaris2 is under /var/ directory)
4.To set new hostid (i.e 84abe39d) issue the following command
# /var/hid_solaris2 84abe39d |sh
hw_serial: 0×32323130 = 0×32323235
hw_serial+4: 0×39313931 = 0×38353734
hw_serial+8: 0×36390000 = 0×33370000
5. new hostid will be active until next reboot. To enable it again at startup add this command to
solaris startup scripts.
