Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.1 - cannot config vsw0 in Solaris 11

Any tips for getting it to work with Solaris 11? I tried following the steps outlined in Administering Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.1, but it fails on the "ifconfig vsw0 plumb" command with:

ifconfig: cannot plumb vsw0: Object not found

    S11 networking has "vanity naming" enabled by default (so things are named net0, net1, etc) - if you run 'dladm show-phys' you should be able to work out which one is from the vsw device.

    Note: unlike on S10, with S11 you don't need to plumb the vsw in order to get connectivity between the guests and the control domain.
