Creating Default Services

    The following virtual device services must be created to use the control domain as a service domain and to create virtual devices for other domains:

  • vcc – Virtual console concentrator service

  • vds – Virtual disk server

  • vsw – Virtual switch service

How to Create Default Services

Before You Begin

If a network is not configured on your machine and a Network Information Services (NIS) client is running, the Logical Domains Manager will not start on your system. So, disable the NIS client on your non-networked machine:

# svcadm disable nis/client

Then, configure networking on the system:

  1. Create a virtual console concentrator (vcc) service for use by the virtual network terminal server daemon (vntsd) and as a concentrator for all logical domain consoles.

    For example, the following command would add a virtual console concentrator service (primary-vcc0) with a port range from 5000 to 5100 to the control domain (primary).

    primary# ldm add-vcc port-range=5000-5100 primary-vcc0 primary
  2. Create a virtual disk server (vds) to allow importing virtual disks into a logical domain.

    For example, the following command adds a virtual disk server (primary-vds0) to the control domain (primary).

    primary# ldm add-vds primary-vds0 primary
  3. Create a virtual switch service (vsw) to enable networking between virtual network (vnet) devices in logical domains.

    Assign a GLDv3-compliant network adapter to the virtual switch if each logical domain must communicate outside the box through the virtual switch.

    Add a virtual switch service (primary-vsw0) on a network device that you want to use for guest domain networking.

    primary# ldm add-vsw net-dev=network-device vsw-service primary

    For example, the following command adds a virtual switch service (primary-vsw0) on network device net0 to the control domain (primary):

    primary# ldm add-vsw net-dev=net0 primary-vsw0 primary

    You can use the ldm list-netdev -b command to determine the backend network devices that are available for the virtual switch. See Virtual Switch.

    You can dynamically update the net-dev property value by using the ldm set-vsw command.

  4. Verify the services have been created by using the list-services subcommand.

    Your output should look similar to the following:

    primary# ldm list-services primary
    VCC
        NAME         LDOM         PORT-RANGE
        primary-vcc0 primary      5000-5255
    
    VSW
        NAME         LDOM         MACADDRESS          NET-DEV   DVID|PVID|VIDs
        ----         ----         ----------          -------   --------------
        primary-vsw0 primary      00:14:4f:fb:87:30   net0      1|1|--
    
    VDS
        NAME         LDOM    VOLUME   OPTIONS MPGROUP DEVICE
        primary-vds0 primary test-mig                 /net/10.26.169.136/tmp/
                                                      Sol11.3/vdisk_s11sru3.img1
