The Oracle VM Server for SPARC Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) Conversion tool automatically converts an existing physical system to a virtual system that runs the Oracle Solaris 10 OS in a logical domain on a chip multithreading (CMT) system. You can run the ldmp2v command from a control domain that runs the Oracle Solaris 10 OS or the Oracle Solaris 11 OS to convert one of the following source systems to a logical domain:
Any sun4u SPARC based system that runs at least the Solaris 8, Solaris 9, or Oracle Solaris 10 OS
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 Chapter 14, Oracle VM Server for SPARC Physical-to-Virtual Conversion Tool. For information about the ldmp2v command, see the ldmp2v(1M) man page.
