DHCP without NWAM in OpenSolaris 2008.05

I just turned off NWAM so that I could get IPv6 auto-configuration working. That part's easy:

touch /etc/hostname6.interface
svcadm disable network/physical:nwam
svcadm enable network/physical:default

The hard part is that this broke IPv4 DHCP. The trick turned out to be simple, but take a lot of playing to find:

touch /etc/hostname.interface
touch /etc/dhcp.interface

This solved errors like Failed to configure IPv4 DHCP interface(s): interface and in.routed: route --> gateway nexthop is not directly connected

NWAM in solaris is stupid, never works properly even with IPv4

any hints on that in 2009.06?
Hi there,

thanks for sharing your insights.

However, the autoconfiguration does not work for me on Opensoaris 2009.06 (with radvd/openwrt router).

The ipv4 part works well, i had the same problem after deactivating nwam.

any hints?

Hm. I've not used 2009.06 in that setting yet. I'll have to give it a try and an update.
