Solaris 11 package installation

I am installaing OVM Server on Sparc and while installation, it is failing on one package. It is not giving me a clear idea, what I need to do to fix it, or I am not able to understand it.
root@ovmi-host1:# ./install

Oracle VM Agent Release 3.4.6 Installer

There was an error during the installation. The Oracle VM Agent

Yes, it looks like you have a driver conflict, as you have indicated.

Did you try installing this way ?:

There are two ways to install OVM servers ( as I read)
- With Oracle VM Server software, that comes with Solaris 11 + OVM software. That is bootable and you gave that in the suggested link.
- install OVS software on pre-installed Solaris-11.

We are using link aggregation on the Sparc server. But if I go with your suggested link, it seems it is the plain interface with IP. Not sure, if this would be a hassle to convert it to aggr later. On switch end also, we have LACP configured so single interface won't work in our case. So I am trying to go with second option and fix this package issue.
I tried to upgrade SRU, assuming that it is running on lower than what OVS is expecting, but seems like, I am missing something
