To use the Solaris DHCP client create zero length files /etc/dhcp.eri1 and 
/etc/hostname.eri1. When you boot the system it will "do the right thing".

To check the status use

  ifconfig eri1 dhcp status

Other useful options are:

  ifconfig eri1 start
  ifconfig eri1 release

Other parameters can be determined using dhcpinfo.

The Solaris dhcp client works well with ISC dhcpd.
