The Oracle VM Server for SPARC Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) Conversion Tool automatically converts an existing physical system to a virtual system that runs in a logical domain on a chip multithreading (CMT) system. The source system can be any of the following:
Any sun4u SPARC system that runs at least the Solaris 8 Operating System
Any sun4v system that runs the Oracle Solaris 10 OS, but does not run the Oracle VM Server for SPARC software
For information about the tool and about installing it, see Appendix A, Oracle VM Server for SPARC Physical-to-Virtual Conversion Tool. For information about the ldmp2v command, see the ldmp2v(1M) man page.
