doesn't seem to work on Solaris 11/11 (x86). After deleting the address with ipadm it seems that the Auto Magic Network config service recreates it per its spec, it just gets a new DHCP address after a few moments. When I run the
ipadm create-addr -T dhcp -h <hostname> net0/_b command I get the following error
2 days working on this and i ended up fixing it myself in the end!
I used netadm to enable the DefaultFixed profile, thereby stopping the Automatic management of the interface - then i was able to create the address myself and push the hostname up to the DHCP server.

instead. The 2nd link is to a command quick reference for setting various network parameters:
