Two questions, 1.5 answers...
By jsavit on Feb 02, 2007
After my last blog entry, I received two questions, which I can partially answer:
- "Do you have any information when the LDOM firmware for the T2000 will be made available?"
Well, yes I do, but it hasn't been officially announced to the world, so I don't think I'm allowed to even hint. I'm really sorry, as I'm itching to...
- "When will the Logical Domain Manager be available outside of Sun? Is it proper to read it as "a separate free download"?"
For the first part of this: same answer as to the first question. To the second: my understanding is that the logical domains support (firmware, new packages, etc) will all be available as free downloads. What I've heard all along is that if you have a T1000/T2000 server, you do not have to spend any extra money or do a box swap, in order to get logical domains! Download the firmware and new packages, install them, follow the docs we'll make available, and you're off in LDom land.
