|Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.1 Administration Guide Oracle VM Server for SPARC|
This section describes the changes in behavior in using the Oracle Solaris OS that occur once a configuration created by the Logical Domains Manager is instantiated.
The OpenBoot firmware is not available after the Oracle Solaris OS has started because it is removed from memory.
To reach the ok prompt from the Oracle Solaris OS, you must halt the domain. You can use the Oracle Solaris OS halt command to halt the domain.
Whenever performing any maintenance on a system running Oracle VM Server for SPARC software that requires powercycling the server, you must save your current logical domain configurations to the SP first.
# ldm add-config config-name
Do not attempt to change an active CPU's operational status in a power-managed domain by using the psradm(1M) command.
The behavior described in this section is seen when you do the following:
Press the L1-A key sequence when the input device is set to keyboard.
Enter the send break command when the virtual console is at the telnet prompt.
After these types of breaks, you receive the following prompt:
c)ontinue, s)ync, r)eset, h)alt?
Type the letter that represents what you want the system to do after these types of breaks.
The following table shows the expected behavior of halting or rebooting the control (primary) domain.
Table 12-1 Expected Behavior of Halting or Rebooting the Control (primary) Domain
For information about the consequences of rebooting a control domain that has the root domain role, see Rebooting the primary Domain.
