Description (last modified by frank) (diff)


I'm running VBox 3.1.4 on Windows XP SP3. I created an OSol 2009.06 guest and tried to run dladm. It failed as shown below:

root@opensolaris:~# dladm create-vnic -l e1000g0 test
dladm: invalid link name 'test'

Here's my ifconfig output...I disabled nwam service (cos i read some article about there being issues with nwam and dladm and vnics) and manually configured the nic.

root@opensolaris:~# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
	inet netmask ff000000 
e1000g0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
	inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
	ether 8:0:27:8d:4:48 
lo0: flags=2002000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv6,VIRTUAL> mtu 8252 index 1
	inet6 ::1/128 

Please help!
