A few months ago I wrote Solaris Cluster on a laptop using VirtualBox, iSCSI and a quorum server, which detailed some of the hoops that I needed to jump through to get it to work. The good news is that the new features in VirtualBox 2.0 (and now 2.1) have gotten rid of 2 of those hoops:
- I no longer need to play with vnics and that crazy script as Host Interface networking simply works out of the box
- I don't need to install the 32bit internal only SC package, as VirtualBox now supports 64bit guests.
I'm in the process of rebuilding my laptop cluster making use of the above new features.
