Solaris 10 / 11 and Oracle VM Virtualbox

| | TrackBacks (0)
As I want to test an IP multipathed iSCSI storage configuration under Solaris 10 and 11 I wanted to set them up in Oracle VirtualBox. It was more or less easy.

Please do not forget to install the VirtualBox guest tools, otherwise the guest will crash as soon as the host system "steals" CPU cycles.

On text-only installs, mount the CD image like this (Solaris 10, CD is IDE master):

# mount -F hsfs /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0 /mnt
On Solaris 11, the CD was attached to controller "7" target "1" (SATA, Port 1)

# mount -F hsfs /dev/dsk/c7t1d0p0 /mnt

Then:

# pkgadd -d /mnt/VBoxSolarisAdditions.pkg


With proper installed VirtualBox guest tools both Solaris work flawlessly.
