So I installed and rebooted and had no network. WAT? I was utterly clueless initially but quickly found some great clues here.
Here were the steps to having usable network access:
- Configure VMWare to use Bridged networking.
# dladm show-link -o link(displayed
# ipadm create-if e1000g0
# ipadm create-addr -T dhcp e1000g0/v4
# vi /etc/nsswitch.conf, add
dnsto the end of a couple of lines so that you end up with
hosts: files dns ipnodes: files dns
# vi /etc/resolv.conf, configure it from scratch so that it looks something like
domain example.com nameserver 22.214.171.124 nameserver 126.96.36.199(using values that work for your machine, of course; grab these from
resolv.confon Linux or from the output of
ipconfig /allon Windows if you don't know what to use)
I don't have hints for picking up the DNS information automatically from DHCP. Do you? (Please leave a comment.)
