System virtualization is a technology that enables multiple operating system (OS) instances to execute independently on shared hardware. Functionally, software deployed to an OS hosted in a virtualized environment is generally unaware that the underlying platform has been virtualized. Some testing has been performed on selected system virtualization and OS combinations to help validate that the products continue to function on properly sized and configured virtualized environments as they do on non-virtualized systems.
For this release, support is provided for any OS running on the Oracle VM technology, provided that the OS is already supported natively for the Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) software. Certification is not provided for every combination of OS and hardware, and support relies on the underlying Oracle VM technology implementation. Production deployment of the Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) software on the Oracle VM technology has not been extensively tested.
For details about supported hardware platforms for this release of Directory Server Enterprise Edition, see Hardware Requirements.

Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) supports Logical Domains, (LDoms), on the SPARC platform for Solaris 10 Update 5. For more information about LDoms, see the Logical Domains (LDoms) 1.0.1 Administration Guide.
