The Logical Domains Manager daemon, ldmd, is automatically enabled when the Oracle VM Server for SPARC software package is installed. Once the daemon is enabled, you can create, modify, and control the logical domains.
On servers starting with the SPARC T7, SPARC M7, and SPARC S7 series server, the ILOM interconnect service enables communication between the ldmd daemon and the service processor (SP). The ilomconfig-interconnect service is enabled by default. To verify that the ILOM interconnect service is enabled, see How to Verify the ILOM Interconnect Configuration.
Caution - Do not disable the ilomconfig-interconnect service. Disabling this service might prevent the correct operation of logical domains and the OS.
Use this procedure to enable the ldmd daemon if it has been disabled.
# svcadm enable ldmd
For more information about the svcadm command, see the svcadm(8) man page.
The ldm list command should list all domains that are currently defined on the system. In particular, the primary domain should be listed and be in the active state. The following sample output shows that only the primary domain is defined on the system.
# ldm list NAME STATE FLAGS CONS VCPU MEMORY UTIL UPTIME primary active ---c- SP 64 3264M 0.3% 19d 9m
