    When trying to install LSWS on OpenSolaris Nevada build 43, I get the following error:

    Serial number is available.
    Would you like to generate a license key request? [Y/n]

    [ERROR] Network configuration is invalid, at least one working network interface is required.

    My network interfaces are working just fine.

    Anyone? This is slightly urgent. Thank you!

    What does your ifconfig look like? I guess if you really want to, you can edit the install shell script and remove this sanity check...

    My ifconfig looks like this. I think the problem is that I'm on a Solaris Zone and it doesn't have a physical hardware address to generate an install key from, just "virtual" ones, since it is similar to a VPS. (ip addresses edited out.)

    Yeah, that's the problem, we need a MAC address for the key.

    So, what am I to do with my $1200 "license" now? There isn't anyway to run LiteSpeed on a Solaris Zone?
