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
ipadm: cannot create address object: Invalid argument provided
I can't find a way to config the hostname using netadm or netcfg.
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.

The url you're referencing is pointing to an S10 document. If you are enabling DefaultFixed, you must be running S11.1?, so try these docs
instead. The 2nd link is to a command quick reference for setting various network parameters:
thanks for the info, the link I included has this at the top of the page -
Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library
so it looks like solaris 11?
Of the two links you sent, the first doesn't work for me, I get a 503 service unavailable.
This is the link to the FCS docs for 11.1
This link does go to an S11 FCS doc, but we republished it to the 11.1 library:
