How to Configure the Oracle VM Server for SPARC P2V Tool

The ldmp2v command is installed by default when you install the ldomsmanager package.

  1. Become an administrator.

    For Oracle Solaris 11.3, see Chapter 1, About Using Rights to Control Users and Processes, in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3 .

  2. Create the /etc/ldmp2v.conf file and configure the following default properties:
    • VDS Name of the virtual disk service, such as VDS="primary-vds0"

    • VSW Name of the virtual switch, such as VSW="primary-vsw0"

    • VCC Name of the virtual console concentrator, such as VCC="primary-vcc0"

    • BACKEND_TYPE Back-end type of zvol, file, or disk

    • BACKEND_SPARSE Determines whether to create back-end devices as sparse volumes or files (BACKEND_SPARSE="yes") or non-sparse volumes or files (BACKEND_SPARSE="no")

    • BACKEND_PREFIX Location to create virtual disk back-end devices

      When BACKEND_TYPE="zvol", specify the BACKEND_PREFIX value as a ZFS dataset name. When BACKEND_TYPE="files", the BACKEND_PREFIX value is interpreted as a path name of a directory that is relative to /.

      For example, BACKEND_PREFIX="tank/ldoms" would result in having ZVOLs created in the tank/ldoms/domain-name dataset, and files created in the /tank/ldoms/domain-name subdirectory.

      The BACKEND_PREFIX property is not applicable to the disk back end.

    • BOOT_TIMEOUT Timeout for Oracle Solaris OS boot in seconds

    For more information, see the ldmp2v.conf.sample configuration file that is part of the downloadable bundle.
