Solaris 11 Express & VirtualBox & OSX

January 24, 2011 Leave a comment

Using curl, I downloaded sol-11-exp-201011-text-x86.iso, setup a basic VM in VirtualBox with four NICs and began to poke around.

My first impressions :

  • My ‘Network Adapters’ in VirtualBox are enumerated backwards in the VM. eg. Adapter1 is e1000g3, Adapter4 is e1000g0
  • DHCP is nice and easy (though a reboot after these steps was needed?) : ifconfig e1000g3 plumb;ifconfig e1000g3 dhcp start;touch /etc/dhcp.e1000g3;echo inet fry > /etc/hostname.e1000g3;cp /etc/nsswitch.dns /etc/nsswitch.conf;svcadm enable -r dns/client
  • NWAM is either going to take some getting used to, or is going to get disabled very quickly.
