ldmconfig Features

You can navigate backward (previous) and forward (next) through these screens until you reach the final step. The final step produces the configuration. At any time you can quit the Configuration Assistant or reset the configuration to use the defaults. From the final screen, you can deploy the configuration to a logical domain.

Caution – Caution –

Do not interact with this configuration step and do not interrupt this process as it might result in a partially configured system.
