I don't know about standard but for static ips, I use the 'old way' and 
not nwam. Which is stuff ip-address into /etc/hostname.interface0, 
svcadm disable network:nwam; svcadm enable network:physical and edit 
/etc/resolv.conf and check for dns in /etc/nsswitch.conf for hosts.

netmasks and persistent routes are left for you to find out about.
