After shutting down an Oracle VM server for SPARC root domain using the –f option (for example, ldm stop -f root domain), shutting down an I/O domain with the ldm stop command causes the I/O domain to panic.
This issue affects servers containing one of the following PCIe cards and a virtual function (VF) assigned to the root domain.
Oracle Quad 10Gb or Dual 40Gb Ethernet Adapter
Oracle Quad Port 10GBase-T Adapter
Recovery: Reboot the I/O domain.
Workaround: Avoid using the –f option with the ldm command on servers with a VF assigned to the root domain and one of the preceding PCIe cards installed.
