Deploy Oracle VM Server for SPARC Workflow
12c Release 3 (188.8.131.52.0)
This guide provides an end-to-end example for how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
Workflows are divided into two categories: Deploy and Operate. This workflow shows how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to deploy Oracle VM Server for SPARC, how to create and manage logical domains, and how to use server pools.
Oracle VM Server for SPARC technology enables you to create and manage several virtual machines, or logical domains, on a single SPARC platform.
When Oracle VM Server for SPARC software is installed, a domain called the control domain is created. From the control domain, you can create virtual machines called logical domains.
Control domain: Creates and manages the logical domains. You can use the control domain to create, destroy, reconfigure, and reboot a logical domain independent of other logical domains.
Logical domain: A virtual machine with resources that run independently on an Oracle VM Server for SPARC Control Domain. Virtual machine resources include a boot environment, CPU threads, memory, I/O devices, and its own operating system.
The Oracle VM Server technology can help you achieve greater resource usage, better scaling, and increased security and isolation.
The following lists the permissions and roles that are required to complete the tasks in the workflow:
Discover and manage assets
Provision Oracle Solaris
Create and manage the profiles and plans
Apply Deployment Plans
Select targets for the job and apply the plan to create zones.
Create an Oracle VM Server for SPARC server pool
Create and install logical domains
The left side of Figure 1-1 indicates prerequisite tasks and workflows. Before you begin this workflow, ensure that Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is installed and configured, that your libraries are deployed and configured, and that your hardware and operating systems are discovered and managed in the software.
The right side of Figure 1-1 is the workflow for how to deploy Oracle VM Server for SPARC technology. The first task in this workflow is Configuring and deploying Oracle VM Server for SPARC. The second task is Creating a Server Pool for Oracle VM Server for SPARC to efficiently manage the logical domains. The final task is Configuring and Installing Logical Domains. The end of the workflow is to view the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Operate Logical Domains Workflow.
Figure 1-1 Deploy Oracle VM Server for SPARC Workflow
At the end of this workflow, you will have logical domains available for you to use. See the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Operate Logical Domains Workflow for how to monitor and manage the logical domains.
