Access Control List
List of available boards that can be assigned to a domain.
See Access Control List.
A Sun Management Center administrative domain consists of one or more host systems. It should not be confused with other uses of the term "domain" in this book. See also hardware domain.
application-specific integrated circuit
The path to the directory where Sun Management Center software is installed. For example, if Sun Management Center software is installed in /opt/SUNWsymon, the directory is /opt/SUNWsymon/addons/SunFirePltAdmin/sbin.
Capacity on Demand option
compact PCI. See also PCI or PCI+.
daughter card assembly for Paroli
default platform agent
When the Sun Management Center add-on software is installed, a platform administration module agent is created. This default platform administration module can monitor one Sun Fire midrange system. To monitor more than one Sun Fire midrange system, you must create an additional platform agent instance for each additional Sun Fire midrange system.
dual inline memory module
See administrative domain and hardware domain.
In this book, "domain administration" refers to the administration of a hardware domain. (See hardware domain.) Domain administration uses procedures that deal with hardware resources within a host system, as well as with the software and applications running on those hardware resources. In other documents, such as the Sun Management Center User's Guide, the term "domain administration" has a second meaning, which is the administration of a group of multiple host systems. (See administrative domain.)
See dynamic reconfiguration.
dynamic random access memory
Dynamic reconfiguration software is a part of the Solaris Operating System and provides the ability to safely remove or install system boards or compact PCI I/O cards into a system while the Solaris Operating System is running. Dynamic reconfiguration software also provides the ability to transfer system boards or compact PCI I/O cards from one domain to another, while the Solaris Operating System is running.
graphical user interface
A Sun Fire midrange systems domain is a logical grouping of system boards and other devices that are contained within a single host system. In this book, this type of domain is called a "hardware domain," not to be confused with an "administrative domain." See also administrative domain.
HPCI, hPCI, or hsPCI
hot-swap PCI assembly
HPCI+, hPCI+, or hsPCI+
hot-swap PCI plus assembly
IB6 - IB9
logical unit number
parallel optical link
The management and monitoring of a complete Sun Fire midrange system. Platform administration includes the ability to divide the Sun Fire midrange system components into multiple hardware domains. Individual hardware domains can be managed and monitored by domain administrators, while the platform administrator retains the ability to manage and monitor all individual hardware domains in addition to the entire platform.
platform agent instance
The default platform administration module can monitor one Sun Fire midrange system. To monitor more than one Sun Fire midrange system, you must create an additional platform agent instance for each additional Sun Fire midrange system.
PCI or PCI+
peripheral component interconnect or PCI plus
A copy of a default platform agent. The default platform administration module can monitor one Sun Fire midrange system. To monitor more than one Sun Fire midrange system, you must create one platform agent instance or proxy for each additional Sun Fire midrange system.
