      Description

      A default installation as outlined in the docs won't start on Solaris 10 x86. The "whoami" utility is in path "/usr/ucb" on Solaris 10, which isn't in the standard PATH environment variable unless the user has added that specifically. The documentation should reflect this.

      Solaris 10 also seemed to throw NPEs if you didn't explicitly set the IP address to bind the servers to. Simply overriding the IP address fixes the problem.
