Go to the Logical Domains download page at http://www.sun.com/servers/coolthreads/ldoms/get.jsp.
Download the P2V software package, SUNWldmp2v.
Starting with the Logical Domains 1.2 release, the SUNWldmp2v package is included in the Logical Domains zip file.
Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.
Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.
Use the pkgadd command to install the SUNWldmp2v package.
# pkgadd -d . SUNWldmp2v
Create the /etc/ldmp2v.conf file to configure the following properties:
VDS – Name of the virtual disk service, such as VDS="primary-vds0"
VSW – Name of the virtual switch, such as VSW="primary-vsw0"
VCC – Name of the virtual console concentrator, such as VCC="primary-vcc0"
BACKEND_TYPE – Backend type of zvol or file
BACKEND_SPARSE – Whether to create backend devices as sparse volumes or files BACKEND_SPARSE="yes", or non-sparse volumes or files BACKEND_SPARSE="no"
BACKEND_PREFIX – Location to create virtual disk backend devices
When BACKEND_TYPE="zvol", specify the BACKEND_PREFIX value as a ZFS dataset name. When BACKEND_TYPE="files", the BACKEND_PREFIX value is interpreted as a path name of a directory that is relative to /.
For example, BACKEND_PREFIX="tank/ldoms" would result in having ZVOLs created in the tank/ldoms/domain-name dataset, and files created in the /tank/ldoms/domain-name subdirectory.
BOOT_TIMEOUT – Timeout for Solaris OS boot in seconds
For more information, see the ldmp2v.conf.sample configuration file that is part of the downloadable bundle.
