Dear Mr. Calkins
First off, many thanks for a great book. I have studying it, trying to learn a solid OS. Here's a question:
In your book you describe zone creation and installation from a sysconfig profile (chapter 6, pages 416-417). I am successful at this, but my zone fails to ping anything in my network except the local zone. The only workarround I found is to create a bridge with dladm create-bridge. I am curious whether this is a standard procedure that is not described in the book, or this is something that comes from my installation. I should state that I am running Oracle Solaris 11.1 x86 text - based in oracle Virtualbox version 4.3 and bridged networking enabled.
Any answer would be helpful.
