SmartOS on VMWare and undefined VNIC

January 14, 2013

After I upgraded from Lion to Mountain Lion the MAC address of VMWare Fusion adaptor had changed for no good reason. That’s why SmartOS (illumos) was failing to plumb the network and dladm complains about unknown status.

To fix this check the newly generated MAC and update the /usbkey/config accordingly.

Check the MAC in OS after reboot. Now interfaces should come up automatically at boot time. 


From → dtrace, mac os x, solaris
