In my earlier builds (v66) of opensolaris xen domUs i’d already been through the playing around with the networking bug. So realistically you would document all of the steps that you took with the physical nic and virtual nic’s etc.. whoops
I decided that i’d do a fresh install with (v77) of opensolaris, which after discovering in the bug report has a kernel problem with mounting HSFS. This means that it can’t use an install cd properly (genius), the bug report suggests doing a NFS install which is fantastic(regarding the networking bug requires a reboot and the boot_archive updating).
