Testing Solaris 11.3 Beta under VBox

Postby Guyver » 15. Jul 2015, 15:50

I am currently attempting to test the beta release of Solaris 11.3 under Virtualbox running under Windows 8.1 64 bit.

It doesn't appear to matter whether I use the last 4.x or the new 5.x VirtualBox, with either the Live installer or Text installer, it reaches the last part of the install, writing out an xml file, and then errors out.

The log file generated by the installer shows a bunch of what I'd deem "encrypted" content as being an invalid parameter to whatever script or command is being used to write that final xml file.

Unfortunately, I cannot cut and paste out of the VBox session to capture the actual message at this time.

Has anyone else attempted to "test" Solaris 11.3 Beta under VBox and have better luck than myself??

I had to manually type the errors, so forgive any "whitespace" irregularities...

This should work in VirtualBox 5.* and probably in the later versions of 4.3*

I installed it today with no issues. Please provide the following information.

1) the exact name of the install media
2) the guests log ( as an attachment )

Problem seems to be with the hosts GPU drivers. I would try to see if there is an upgrade and also seek assistance from ATI/AMD. Make sure the drivers are signed.

Well, that's not good, as I'm running the latest, signed AMD provided driver for this card.

Catalyst 15.7 for an R9 270x

I've enabled the built in Intel HD display adapter, now if only there were a way to tie VirtualBox to that display adapter instead of the AMD R9 270x that doesn't appear to make VBox happy.

Maybe you should raise a ticket at bugtracker and also see what ATI/AMD have to say.
I know that particular file has caused BSODs in Windows before so it does have issues.

I may have to, as I've just attempted to create a Solaris 11.3 x86/x64 VM under VirtualBox 5.0 running on my Solaris 11.2 x86/x64 laptop, and it failed at exactly the same place.

The laptop uses an nVidia video chipset that I've gone through 11.0 through 11.2 on via monthly SRU updates, so the AMD driver probably isn't the actual problem here.

It then proceeds to list what looks like one hell of a large encryption key.

Just thought I'd post what the real problem was and the fix.

During the installation, I would always fill in the blanks for my Solaris Support Identifier - login/password.

When it got to the point of saving the credentials, it would bomb (99%).

I finally tried the install without filling in the blanks, leaving that section alone, and the installation went through without a hitch.

Odd eh?
