This section describes software that you can use with the LDoms software.
Solaris Security Toolkit (SST) software can help you secure the Solaris OS in the control domain and other domains. SST is no longer supported by Sun and is no longer bundled with the Logical Domains 1.3 software.
You can still download and use the following versions of SST to harden your Logical Domains systems:
SST 4.2, which was previously bundled with Logical Domains releases, is still available from http://www.sun.com/software/security/jass/.
The community-supported version, SST:CE, is available for both the Solaris 10 OS and OpenSolaris OS. You can get information about the project and access the source code from the project page at http://hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Project+sst/.
Logical Domains Management Information Base (MIB) software can help you enable third-party applications to perform remote monitoring and a few control operations. Refer to the Logical Domains (LDoms) MIB 1.0.1 Administration Guide and the Logical Domains (LDoms) MIB 1.0.1 Release Notes for more information.
LDoms MIB software for LDoms software works with LDoms 1.0.1 software at a minimum.
This section details the software that is compatible with and can be used with the Logical Domains software. Be sure to check the software documentation or your platform documentation to find the version number of the software that is available for your version of the LDoms software and your platform.
SunVTS functionality is available in the control domain and guest domains on certain LDoms software releases and certain platforms. SunVTSTM is Sun's Validation Test Suite, which provides a comprehensive diagnostic tool that tests and validates Sun hardware by verifying the connectivity and proper functioning of most hardware controllers and devices on Sun servers. For more information about SunVTS, refer to the SunVTS 5.0 User’s Guide.
Sun Management Center 4.0 Add-On Software can be used only on the control domain with the Logical Domains Manager software enabled. Sun Management Center is an open, extensible system monitoring and management solution. It uses the JavaTM runtime environment and a variant of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to provide integrated and comprehensive enterprise-wide management of Sun products and their subsystems, components, and peripheral devices. Support for hardware monitoring within the Sun Management Center environment is achieved through the use of appropriate hardware server module add-on software, which presents hardware configuration and fault reporting information to the Sun Management Center server and console. Refer to the Sun Management Center 4.0 Release Notes for more information about using Sun Management Center 4.0 on the supported servers.
Sun Explorer Data Collector can be used with the Logical Domains Manager software enabled on the control domain. Sun Explorer is a diagnostic data collection tool. The tool comprises shell scripts and a few binary executables. Refer to the Sun Explorer User’s Guide for more information about using the Sun Explorer Data Collector.
Solaris Cluster software can be used only on an I/O domain in Logical Domains software releases up through LDoms 1.0.2. In LDoms 1.0.3, 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 software, Solaris Cluster software can be used in a guest domain with some restrictions. Refer to Solaris Cluster documentation for more information about any restrictions and about the Solaris Cluster software in general. Starting with the Logical Domains 1.2 release and the Solaris Cluster 11/09 release, you can also manage logical domains as a resource by using the Solaris Cluster failover agent.
Sun Ops Center 2.5 enables you to manage physical and virtual system resources. This solution simplifies resource discovery and monitoring, provides operating system and firmware provisioning, performs comprehensive update and patch management, manages virtual environments such as Solaris Containers and Logical Domains, and supports hardware management from power up to production. For more information, see http://www.sun.com/software/products/opscenter/inside.jsp.
The following system controller (SC) software interacts with the LDoms 1.3 software:
Sun Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.0 firmware is the system management firmware that you can use to monitor, manage, and configure UltraSPARC T2 based server platforms. ILOM is preinstalled on these platforms and can be used on LDoms-supported servers with the Logical Domains Manager 1.3 software enabled. Refer to the Sun Integrated Lights Out Manager 3.0 User's Guide for features and tasks that are common to Sun rackmounted servers or blade servers that support ILOM. Other user documents present ILOM features and tasks that are specific to the server platform that you are using. You can find the ILOM platform-specific information within the documentation set that accompanies your system.
Netra Data Plane Software Suite is a complete board software package solution. The software provides an optimized rapid development and runtime environment on top of multistrand partitioning firmware for Sun CMT platforms. The Logical Domains Manager contains some ldm subcommands (add-vdpcs, rm-vdpcs, add-vdpcc, and rm-vdpcc) for use with this software. Refer to the Netra Data Plane Software Suite 2.0 User’s Guide for more information about this software.
