Libvirt for LDoms 1.0.1 Administration Guide 820-3838 Libvirt for LDoms 1.0.1 Release Notes 820-3839 This download also contains the SUNWjldm.v package, which installs the localized Japanese man page for the ldm(1M) command. Japanese locales supported: ja, ja_JP.eucJP, ja_JP.PCK, ja_JP.UTF-8 This package is found in the Product/Japanese directory. Software ======== In order to avail of all the features in LDoms 1.1, the Operating System on all domains should be equivalent to Solaris 10 10/08 at a minimum. This can either be a fresh/upgrade install of Solaris 10 10/08 or any of Solaris 10 5/08, Solaris 10 8/07 or Solaris 10 11/06 with 137137-09 applied. In addition, the patches listed below are required. It lists what types of domain each patch is required to be applied to but the patches can be applied to all domains. Patch Control Service/IO Guest Domain Domain Domain 139562-02 (multiple LDoms drivers) X X X 139570-02 (nxge driver) X X X 139508-01 (niumx driver) X X X 139502-01 (picl plugin) X 139458-01 (aggr driver) X X Following is a matrix of required software to enable all the Logical Domains 1.1 features: Supported Servers System Firmware Solaris OS Sun UltraSPARC T2 Plus-based 7.2 One of the configs above Sun UltraSPARC T2-based 7.2 One of the configs above Sun UltraSPARC T1-based 6.7 One of the configs above It is possible to run the Logical Domains 1.1 software along with previous revisions of the other software components. For example, you could have differing versions of the Solaris OS on the various domains in a machine. It is recommended to have all domains running Solaris 10 10/08 OS plus patches listed above, but an alternate upgrade strategy could be to upgrade the control and service domains to Solaris 10 10/08 OS plus patches list above and to continue running the guest domains at the existing patch level. Following is a matrix of the minimum version of software required. The minimum software versions are platform specific and depend on the requirements of the CPU in the machine. The minimum Solaris OS version for a given CPU type applies to all domain types (control, service, I/O, and guest). Supported Servers System Firmware Solaris OS Sun UltraSPARC T2 Plus-based 7.1.x Solaris 10 8/07(1) Sun UltraSPARC T2-based 7.0.x Solaris 10 8/07 Sun UltraSPARC T1-based 6.5.x Solaris 10 11/06(2) (1) Must also use Patch ID 127111-08 at a minimum (2) Must also use Patch IDs 124921-02, 125043-01, and KU 118833-36 at a minimum Sun System firmware available on http://sunsolve.sun.com The Libvirt and MIB software for LDoms 1.0.1 also supports LDoms 1.1. In addition to the software packages for Libvirt and virt-install, the source is included in this download. The Libvirt source can be found in the Product/Libvirt-source directory. The virt-install source and the binaries are the same. Here are the default locations for the virt-install files: /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/urlgrabber/__init__.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/urlgrabber/byterange.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/urlgrabber/grabber.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/urlgrabber/keepalive.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/urlgrabber/mirror.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/urlgrabber/progress.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/urlgrabber/sslfactory.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/virtinst/DistroManager.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/virtinst/FullVirtGuest.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/virtinst/Guest.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/virtinst/Makefile /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/virtinst/ParaVirtGuest.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/virtinst/__init__.py /usr/lib/python2.4/vendor-packages/virtinst/util.py /usr/sbin/virt-install Flag-Day for configurations --------------------------- Existing LDoms 1.0 configurations do not work in LDoms 1.1 software. See the "Upgrading to LDoms 1.1 Software" section in the Logical Domains (LDoms) 1.1 Administration Guide to migrate existing configurations.
