Minimal OpenSolaris 2009.06 Appliance Image for VirtualBox 2.2.4

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
    unzip it.
  • 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.

Comments welcome.
