comment Is it possible to remove the lock of consoles in Solaris?
Oops, I forgot about those - if you don't run them it won't take effect until after you reboot. Answer updated to include that as you suggested.

comment OpenSolaris.. Um, is it becoming unmaintained?
Since the above was written, the opensolaris.org website was shut down, and the sources for the open source packages in Solaris 11 can now be found instead at oracle.com/technetwork/opensource/systems-solaris-1562786.html and solaris.java.net .

comment Solaris 10 vs Solaris 11
SVR4 packages can still be installed on Solaris 11, you'll lose some benefits of IPS, but don't have to convert your entire library.

comment inetd and echo service
As the comment in the file you quoted says, on Solaris 10 and later, inetd services are managed via the inetadm command, not via editing the inetd.conf file, so using grep on inetd.conf is pointless.

comment GCC missing from Solaris 11, and server already deployed (no access to internet)
You can't download installable packages via the web ui, just files containing minimal metadata to tell the package manager to connect to the repository to download the packages. To get installable packages from the repository you need to use the pkgrecv command to grab them, but then as noted you'll have to find all the dependencies yourself and get them too. The full repository image jlliagre suggested is far less work to download.

comment Moving a Solaris VM from 32 to 64-bit
Solaris 11 Express always installed both 32-bit & 64-bit kernels. Solaris 11.0 (aka Solaris 11 11/11) and later dropped the 32-bit kernel and only have the 64-bit kernel now.
