Logical Domains 1.3 Administration Guide

Collection Phase

This phase runs on the system to be converted. To create a consistent file system image, ensure that the system is as quiet as possible and that all applications are stopped. ldmp2v creates a backup of all mounted UFS file systems, so ensure that any file systems to be migrated to the logical domain are mounted. You can exclude mounted file systems by using the -x.

No changes are required on the source system. The only thing required is the ldmp2v script that was installed on the control domain. Depending on the selected archiving method you intend to use, ensure that the ufsdump or flarcreate utility is present on the source system.
