The ldmd/recovery_mode SMF property controls recovery mode behavior.
To configure the Logical Domains Manager to automatically begin the recovery process when the system enters recovery mode, you must first enable recovery mode. To enable recovery mode, set the ldmd/recovery_mode property value to auto and refresh the ldmd SMF service.
primary# svccfg -s ldmd setprop ldmd/recovery_mode = astring: auto primary# svcadm refresh ldmd
By default, the ldmd/recovery_mode property is not present. When this property is not present or is set to never, the Logical Domains Manager exits recovery mode without taking any action and the physical domain runs the factory-default configuration.
primary# svccfg -s ldmd setprop ldmd/recovery_mode = astring: auto primary# svcadm refresh ldmd primary# svcadm restart ldmd
Recovery mode is initiated immediately in this scenario only if no changes were made to the system, that is, if it is still in the factory-default configuration.
