Oracle VM Server for SPARC supports the following configuration recovery methods:
The autosave method, used when the configuration is not available on the SP.
This situation might occur in one of the following circumstances:
The hardware that holds the saved configurations has been replaced
The configuration is not up to date because you neglected to save the latest configuration changes to the SP or an unexpected power cycle occurred
The ldm add-domain method, used if a subset of the domains need to have their configurations restored
The ldm init-system method, which should be used only as a last resort. Use this method only when both the configuration on the SP and the autosave information from the control domain are lost.
