There are three methods of installing the Logical Domains Manager software:
Using the installation script to install the packages and patches. This automatically installs the Logical Domains Manager software. See Installing the Logical Domains Manager Software Automatically.
Using JumpStart to install the packages. See Using JumpStart to Install the Logical Domains Manager 1.3 Software.
Installing the package manually. See Installing the Logical Domains Manager Software Manually.
Remember that you need to manually install the LDoms MIB software package after you install the Logical Domains packages. It is not automatically installed with the other packages. Refer to the Logical Domains (LDoms) MIB 1.0.1 Administration Guide for more information about installing and using the LDoms MIB.
If you use the install-ldm installation script, you have several choices to specify how you want the script to run. Each choice is described in the procedures that follow.
Using the install-ldm script with no options does the following automatically:
Checks that the Solaris OS release is Solaris 10 10/09 OS at a minimum
Verifies that the package subdirectories SUNWldm/ and SUNWldmp2v/ are present
Verifies that the prerequisite Solaris Logical Domains driver packages, SUNWldomr and SUNWldomu, are present
Verifies that the SUNWldm and SUNWldmp2v packages have not been installed
Installs the Logical Domains Manager 1.3 software
Verifies that all packages are installed
If the Solaris Security Toolkit (SUNWjass) is already installed, you are prompted to harden the Solaris OS on the control domain.
Determine whether to use the Logical Domains Configuration Assistant (ldmconfig) to perform the installation.
Using the install-ldm script with the -c option automatically runs the Logical Domains Configuration Assistant after the software is installed.
Using the install-ldm script with the -s option skips the running of the Logical Domains Configuration Assistant.
Using the install-ldm script and the following options with the Solaris Security Toolkit software enables you to do the following:
install-ldm -d. Allows you to specify a Solaris Security Toolkit driver other than a driver ending with -secure.driver. This option automatically performs all the functions listed in the preceding choice and hardens the Solaris OS on the control domain with the Solaris Security Toolkit customized driver that you specify; for example, the server-secure-myname.driver.
install-ldm -d none. Specifies that you do not want to harden the Solaris OS running on your control domain by using the Solaris Security Toolkit. This option automatically performs all the functions except hardening listed in the preceding choices. Bypassing the use of the Solaris Security Toolkit is not suggested and should only be done when you intend to harden your control domain using an alternate process.
install-ldm -p. Specifies that you only want to perform the post-installation actions of enabling the Logical Domains Manager daemon (ldmd) and running the Solaris Security Toolkit. For example, you would use this option if the SUNWldm and SUNWjass packages are preinstalled on your server.
See JumpStart Technology: Effective Use in the Solaris Operating Environment for complete information about using JumpStart.
Do not disconnect from the virtual console during a network installation.
Refer to the Solaris 10 10/09 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations for complete information about this procedure.
Perform the following steps.
Set up networked systems with the procedures in “Creating a Profile Server for Network Systems.”
Create the rules file with the procedure in “Creating the rules File.”
Validate the rules file with the procedure in “Validating the rules File.”
Download the Logical Domains Manager 1.3 software, the SUNWldm and SUNWldmp2v packages, from the Sun Software Download site. See Download the Software for specific instructions.
Use the pkgadd command to install the SUNWldm.v and SUNWldmp2v packages.
For more information about the pkgadd command, see the pkgadd(1M) man page.
The -G option installs the package in the global zone only and the -d option specifies the path to the directory that contains the SUNWldm.v and SUNWldmp2v packages.
# pkgadd -Gd . SUNWldm.v SUNWldmp2v
Answer y for yes to all questions in the interactive prompts.
Use the pkginfo command to verify that the Logical Domains Manager 1.3 packages, SUNWldm and SUNWldmp2v, are installed.
For more information about the pkginfo command, see the pkginfo(1) man page.
The revision (REV) information shown below is an example.
# pkginfo -l SUNWldm | grep VERSION VERSION=1.3,REV=2009.12.03.10.20
