On a Solaris 10 server I am trying to edit the hosts file but it's preventing me from doing so saying it's read only. I am logged in as the root user.
ls -l on the
/etc directory I see the following;
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 Apr 25 2008 hosts -> ./inet/hosts
I've read that the
l at the beginning of the permissions means that this file is linked to another - presumably the
/inet/hosts. However I can't see any files in this location.
Any idea how I can edit the hosts file, and how it ever got the
lrwxrwxrwx permissions in the first place?
