Solaris x86 guest in vmware workstation

I swear I have no other devices on the vmnet, but after I configured one of the solaris x86 os, I kept getting warning ..node xx xxxxx have our ip addresss, and it scrolled thru it forever ..

I tried to boot it into single user mode , still having the same issue..

still no luck,

no sure how I could mount the cdrom/iso in this VMware and mount the zfs and manually edit the ip away, SmilieSmilie

fixed now, after looking it, it turns out h1 was used as a hostname, which was an alias to my other Linux guest..

boot the thing into failed save in grub.conf, and mount the zfs rpool as r/w, and edit the files related to hostname..all done..Smilie
