    Solaris 10* cfgadm: administration not supported

    960630
      Hello everyone,

      I'm very new to Solaris, in fact I've just installed Open Solaris 10 as a Virtual Machine on Proxmox and started tinkering with it.
      It happened only when I wanted to configure disks when I saw the following message:

      # cfgadm -al
      cfgadm: Configuration administration not supported

      I've googled it but I haven't done anything but a basic installation. Can anyone tell me what is happening? Any helping hand would be highly appreciated.

      Edit:
      Some more info:
      # id
      uid=0(root) gid=0(root)
      # uname -a
      SunOS solaris 5.10 Generic_147441-01 i86pc i386 i86pc

          I'm not familiar with running Solaris in a VM on Proxmox, but I have Solaris 11 running in Virtual Box
          and cfgadm works fine. See the output below on the Solaris 11 VB. I'm not certain because I don't
          have a Solaris 10 image available, but I would assume that cfgadm would work similarly for
          Solaris 10 in VB.

          Thanks,

          Cindy
