Logical Domains 1.3 Administration Guide

Enabling the Logical Domains Manager Daemon

The install-ldm installation script automatically enables the Logical Domains Manager daemon (ldmd). The ldmd daemon is also automatically enabled when the SUNWldm package is installed. When enabled, you can create, modify, and control the logical domains.

ProcedureEnable the Logical Domains Manager Daemon

Use this procedure to enable the ldmd daemon if it has been disabled.

  1. Use the svcadm command to enable the Logical Domains Manager daemon, ldmd.

    For more information about the svcadm command, see the svcadm(1M) man page.

    # svcadm enable ldmd
  2. Use the ldm list command to verify that the Logical Domains Manager is running.

    The ldm list command should list all domains that are currently defined on the system. In particular, the primary domain should be listed and be in the active state. The following sample output shows that only the primary domain is defined on the system.

    # /opt/SUNWldm/bin/ldm list
    primary          active   ---c-   SP      64    3264M    0.3%  19d 9m
