Ctrl-Alt-Fx is not working

Hello, it seems key combination of Ctrl-Alt-Fx is no longer working. It's used in Linux to switch from X11 to text console and also in OpenBSD to switch between text consoles. In linux I've tested without host additions. Solaris host is OS 2009.06 and Linux is CentOS 5.x.

Did you try "host key"+Fx? And are you sure that the guest hasn't disabled it?

You say you're using Solaris host. Solaris by default doesn't support virtual consoles, so I fail to see what the problem is. Michael mentioned the necessary key sequence to send this to guests, which is also in the manual.
