Solaris10 Network Interface on vmware


If you are using vmware to install your Solaris 10 x86 operating system, the network interface sometimes doesn’t up automatically. You need to check if there is a vmware network interface on your system. You can issue this command:
# grep -i net /etc/path_to_inst
"/pci@0,0/pci1022,2000@11" 0 "vmxnet"
# dladm show-dev
vmxnet0 link: unknown speed: 0 Mbps duplex: unknown

You should’ve found vmxnet network interface. Issue this command to bring this interface up:
# ifconfig vmxnet0 plumb

Use this command to set ip for this interface:
ifconfig vmxnet 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
