Oracle How to add Solaris text console to Solaris grub2 menu?

I am new to sloaris and just instlled the solaris 11.2, i know little more about linux, i open the /boot/grub/grub.cfg in solaris and there is many other entries forl solaris 11.2 one of them is for 'Oracle Solaris 11.2 text console' but at boot grub2 only show the first default entry that is 'Oracle Solaris 11.2' and start the solairs graphical or gnome interface.
I want to add the 'Oracle Solaris 11.2 text console' as well to boot the solaris to the text console not the gui, i read about the bootadm add-entry command and add the second entry to the grub menu but don't know to set the full other parameters for this entry:
menuentry "Oracle Solaris 11.2 text console" {
        search --no-floppy --file --set=root /
        set kern=/platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix
        echo -n "Loading ${root}$kern: "
        $multiboot $kern $kern -B livemode=text
        set gfxpayload="1024x768x32;1024x768x16;800x600x16;640x480x16;640x480x15;640x480x32"
        insmod gzio
        echo -n "Loading ${root}/platform/i86pc/amd64/boot_archive: "
        $module /platform/i86pc/amd64/boot_archive

please any one help me with the full commands for this entry to grub2 menu?
