Solaris 11 Tips

Solaris, Technology
Static IP Solaris 11 network stack is using crossbow so network administration is completely different now. In order to switch from DHCP to a static IP, we need to do the following: # netadm enable -p ncp DefaultFixed # ipadm create-ip net0 # ipadm create-addr -T static -a net0/v4 Enable root login rolemod -K type=normal root Install Gnome pfexec pkg install --accept solaris-desktop Automated Installer If the installadm client fails to boot and you land at the grub prompt, you may be missing next-server directive in the dhcp configuration. This should follow the filename directive. # vi /etc/inet/dhcpd4.conf ... host 08002746E9C3 { hardware ethernet 08:00:27:46:E9:C3; if option arch = 00:00 { filename "0108002746E9C3.bios"; } else if option arch = 00:07 { filename "0108002746E9C3.uefi"; } next-server; }
