The methods of installing the Logical Domains Manager software are:
Oracle Solaris 10 only. Using the installation script to install the packages and patches. This method automatically installs the Logical Domains Manager software. See Automatically Installing the Logical Domains Manager Software (Oracle Solaris 10).
Oracle Solaris 10 only. Using the Oracle Solaris JumpStart feature to install the packages as part of a network installation. See Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations for information about configuring a JumpStart server. Also see JumpStart Technology: Effective Use in the Solaris Operating Environment for complete information about using this feature.
Oracle Solaris 11 only. Using the Oracle Solaris 11 Automated Installer feature to install the packages as part of a network installation. See How to Use the Automated Installer in Installing Oracle Solaris 11.1 Systems and Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 JumpStart to Oracle Solaris 11.1 Automated Installer .
Installing the package manually. See Manually Installing the Logical Domains Manager Software.
The install-ldm installation script provides options to specify how you want the script to run. Each choice is described in the procedures that follow.
If you do not specify any options, the script does the following automatically:
Checks that the Oracle Solaris OS release is the Oracle Solaris 10 OS
Verifies that the package subdirectories SUNWldm/ and SUNWldmp2v/ and that the prerequisite Oracle VM Server for SPARC driver packages, SUNWldomr and SUNWldomu, are present
Verifies that the SUNWldm and SUNWldmp2v packages have not been installed
Installs the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.1 software
Verifies that all packages are installed
If the Solaris Security Toolkit (SST) package (SUNWjass) is already installed, you are prompted to harden the Oracle Solaris OS on the control domain.
Determines whether to use the Oracle VM Server for SPARC Configuration Assistant (ldmconfig) to perform the installation.
To automatically run the Oracle VM Server for SPARC Configuration Assistant after the software is installed, specify the –c. To skip running this utility, specify the –s.
If the SST package is installed, you can issue the following options with the install-ldm script:
Specifies an SST driver other than a driver ending with -secure.driver. This option hardens the Oracle Solaris OS on the control domain with the SST customized driver that you specify, for example, the server-secure-myname.driver.
Specifies that you do not want to harden the Oracle Solaris OS running on your control domain by using the SST. Bypassing the use of the SST is not suggested and should only be done when you intend to harden your control domain using an alternative process.
Specifies that you only want to perform the post-installation actions of enabling the Logical Domains Manager daemon (ldmd) and running the SST. For example, you would use this option if the SUNWldm and SUNWjass packages are preinstalled on your server.
The following procedure guides you through manually installing the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.1 software on the Oracle Solaris 10 OS.
When you install the Oracle Solaris 11 OS, the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.1 software is installed by default. If you want to install the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.1 software, see How to Upgrade to the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.1 Software (Oracle Solaris 11).

See Location of the Oracle VM Server for SPARC Software in Oracle VM Server for SPARC 126.96.36.199, 3.1.1, and 3.1 Release Notes for details about the structure of the file and what it includes.
primary# ldm add-config config-name
# pkgadd -Gd . SUNWldm.v SUNWldmp2v
Answer y for yes to all questions in the interactive prompts.
The –G option installs the package in the global zone only. The –d option specifies the path to the directory that contains the SUNWldm.v and SUNWldmp2v packages.
For more information, see the pkgadd(1M) man page.
The following revision (REV) information is an example:
# pkginfo -l SUNWldm | grep VERSION VERSION=188.8.131.52.24,REV=2013.07.23.12.23
