Solaris 11: changing the hostname

To change the hostname in Solaris 11, I followed this steps:

1 - To check the current environment properties:

root@solaris:~# svccfg -s system/identity:node listprop config
config                 application        
config/enable_mapping boolean     true
config/nodename       astring     solaris
config/loopback       astring     solaris

2 - Set the new hostname

root@solaris:~# svccfg -s system/identity:node setprop config/nodename="my-host-name"
root@solaris:~# svccfg -s system/identity:node setprop config/loopback="my-host-name"

3- Refresh the properties:

root@solaris:~# svccfg -s system/identity:node refresh
4 - Restart the service:
root@solaris:~# svcadm restart system/identity:node

5 - verify that the changes took place:

root@solaris:~# svccfg -s system/identity:node listprop config
config                 application        
config/enable_mapping boolean     true
config/nodename       astring     my-host-name
config/loopback       astring     my-host-name
root@solaris:~# hostname
my-host-name

The hostname in the prompt will appear the next time a shell is open.
