Like the Windows Guest Additions, the VirtualBox Guest Additions for Solaris take the form of a set of device drivers and system applications which may be installed in the guest operating system.
The following Solaris distributions are officially supported:
OpenSolaris Nevada (Build 82 and higher; this includes OpenSolaris 2008.05 and 2008.11);
OpenSolaris Indiana (Developer Preview 2 and higher);
Solaris 10 (u5 and higher).
Прочие дистрибутивы могут работать , если они базируются из совместимом программном обеспечении.
As with Windows and Linux guests, we recommend installation of the VirtualBox Guest Additions for Solaris.
The VirtualBox Guest Additions for Solaris are provided on the same ISO CD-ROM as the Additions for Windows and Linux described above. They also come with an installation program guiding you through the setup process.
Процес установки включает в себя следующие шаги:
VBoxGuestAdditions.iso file as your Solaris guest's virtual

Section 22.214.171.124, “Mounting the Additions ISO file”

svcadm restart volfs

pkgadd -d ./VBoxSolarisAdditions.pkg
Choose "1" and confirm installation of the guest additions package. After the installation is complete, re-login to X server on your guest to activate the X11 Guest Additions.
The Solaris Guest Additions can be safely removed by removing the package from the guest. Open a root terminal session and execute:
