Not able to see network interface card in Solaris 10

Hello, I have configure the Solaris in Vmware workstation but due to some reason I am not able to see the network interface after the installation, I do not see interface after executing the command 'ifconfig -a'. Also I verified there is no issue with VMware configuration. Is there any command I can run to get my interface active?

have you tried plumbing the interface

#ifconfig <interface_name> plumb

Nope it doesn't work, it says invalid arguments

#ifconfig e1000g0 plumb

How to check whether driver for the network has installed and what is it's name ? Can we do it via 'prtconf -v' ??

Were you able to setup network during installation? It could be a problem in VMware setup

How did you decide that the interface would be called e100g0? Have you tried using interfcae name pcn0?

virtual machine is x86, so I just thought of using e1000g0. Any way I will try pcn0 and let you know if it works.
but any way to confirm which network driver is loaded ? I think name of the interface is depends upon the network driver,
so once I findout which network driver is loaded, guessing the interface name would be easy.

what do you see in /var/adm/messages ?

Brian UtterbackPrinciple Software EngineerCommented:
Well, you were on the right track before. Look for things that say "network" in the output of "prtconf -v". The interface name depends on the driver, which in turn depends on the hardware (or virtual hardware) that the OS sees.
