cfgadm: Configuration administration not supported

Hi,

I am running Solaris 11 on Hyper-V built into Windows 8 Pro. When I type:

cfgadm -al

I do get an:

cfgadm: Configuration administration not supported

is this something related to running Solaris 11 in Hyper-V? I know it is not supported but I am trying Hyper-V as Virtual Box was not stable enough for my tests.

Thanks,
Codrut

    Hi Codrut,

    I'm not familiar with Hyper-V but a quick review of the cfgadm.1m man page
    says that the -a option shows dynamic attachment points.

    Maybe dynamic attachment points are not available in this virtual environment.
    For listing device info, I would try:

    # cfgadm
    # cfgadm -l

    I just fired up my Solaris 11 VB and cfgadm, cfgadm -l, and cfgadm -al all show
    similar output. Below is cfgadm -al.

    Thanks, Cindy

    All commands related to cfgadm are failing with

    #cfgadm
    cfgadm: Configuration administration not supported

    I think this is related to Hyper-V and the lack of support for example for SCSI. Thanks for looking into this. However I am pretty sure it is due ot Hyper-V.

    Thanks,
    Codrut
