Devices -> Install Guest Additions

once cdrom is mounted, go to

/cdrom/vboxadditions_version

either

(1)

./VBoxSolarisAdditions.pkg

or

(2)

 ./autorun.sh

 

For Solaris 11 if the above does not work, perform manual install using the legacy pkgadd (not pkg)

e.g. Guest Additions cd mounted in /media/VBOXADDITIONS_6.1.10_138449

cd /media/VBOXADDITIONS_6.1.10_138449

pkgadd -d /media/VBOXADDITIONS_6.1.10_138449/VBoxSolarisAdditions.pkg SUNWvboxguest

## To uninstall (e.g. for reinstallation

pkgrm SUNWvboxguest
