Tools On OpenSolaris DE Fails

I'm currently having an issue with the tools on OpenSolaris Developer Edition. As the OS is coming up, there's a console message saying that it couldn't configure vmxnet1 ( configured for host-only ), though it does get an IP from the DHCP server.

Once the OS is up, if I try and manually start the tools, it displays a message saying that it hasn't been configured. I've run vmware-config-tools.pl, and everything looks OK until the end, when it starts the various services. The "Guest vmxnet fast network device" comes back with a status of failed, which fails the execution of the tools. A subsequent ifconfig shows all vmxnet devices to have an ip address of

Is there some option to get logging from the vmware-config-tools.pl to see where it's going wrong?
