Change Controlling PDomain-SPP for Host (Failover)

Before You Begin

  • Not all SPARC M series servers support PDomain-SPP failover. Therefore, if the Oracle ILOM properties described in this procedure do not appear in the CLI and web interface, the PDomain-SPP host failover feature is not supported. For further details about failover operations supported on a server, refer to the administration guide provided for the server.

  • The Admin (a) role is required to change the controlling PDomain-SPP for host.

  • Changing the controlling PDomain-SPP might cause an interruption in communication between the Host PDomain-SPP and Oracle ILOM. If this occurs, any active Oracle ILOM Remote System Console Plus sessions on the PDomain-SPP will automatically be disconnected.

To change the controlling PDomain-SPP that is currently responsible for managing Host system activity, follow these steps

  1. Identify the active SPP for the PDomain by performing one of the following:
    • Web: Click System Management > Domains page and view the SP Name column in the Host Configuration table.

      - or -

    • CLI: Type: show /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_n/host

      View the sp_name = property to identify the active PDomain-SPP.

  2. To change the controlling PDomain SPP for host, perform one of the following:
    • Web: Click System Management > Domains page, then click the More details... link for instructions.

      - or -

    • CLI: Type: set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_n/host initiate_sp_failover=<true|force>

      Where true gracefully negotiates the PDomain-SPP assignment, where force forcibly changes the PDomain-SPP assignment. If a prompt appears to confirm that you want to continue the failover operation. Type y to continue, otherwise type n.
