Start a Host With Guest Domains

If the host is configured with Oracle VM Server for SPARC guest domains, use this procedure to power on the host and start the guest domains simultaneously.

You must have the reset role (r) to complete this task.

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM.

    See Log In to Oracle ILOM (CLI).

  2. Check the status of the boot_guests property.
    -> show /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_0/HOST/domain/control
          auto-boot = enabled
          boot_guests = enabled
  3. Consider your next step.
    • If boot_guests is enabled, go to Step 4.
    • If boot_guests is not enabled, enable it.
      -> set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_0/HOST/domain/control boot_guests=enabled

    Note -  If you do not set boot_guests to enabled, you must manually boot the guest domains individually.
  4. Start the host console.

    See Start the Host Console.

  5. Start the host.

    See Start a Host.
