With the release of the OpenSolaris 2009.06, I thought it is time to update the Minimal OpenSolaris 2008.11 Appliance OVF image that I had created earlier. The script create_osol2009006_app.sh has been updated to create minimal OpenSolaris 2009.06 Appliance images for VirtualBox.
How to use the OVF image?
- Download VirtualBox 2.2.4 and install it on your host platform.
- Download the OpenSolaris 2009.06 App OVF image zip file and then
- Fire up Virtualbox GUI and use menu item VirtualBox->File->Import Appliance to
import the image (using the OSOL200906App.ovf file ) into a new VirtualBox VM
- Start the newly created VM and in few minutes you will be ready to login
into OpenSolaris 2009.06 kernel.The preset login information is user: root with password: opensolaris.
