With Solaris 10 you need to edit /etc/resolv.conf and:

cp /etc/nsswitch.dns /etc/nsswitch.conf 

Also I am assuming you have a bridged network in VirtualBox. If you have Host only it won't work. But as a test try to ping Google DNS server if you can then the solution stated above will work, otherwise you don't have routing to Internet and need. To fix that first.
