Contributed by Juergen Fleischer and Mahesh Sharma. The purpose of this blog is to show you how to create a SecondaryI/O domain. The First I/O domain is commonly known as Control Domain (CDOM).There are various terms that are used for a Secondary domain, like alternativeI/O domain or redundant I/O domain. The secondary I/O domain will have been assigned somephysical I/O devices, which may be a PCIe bus root complex, a PCI device, or aSR-IOV (Single Root I/O Virtualization)...

Contributed by Juergen Fleischer and Mahesh Sharma. In this blog we wanted to show you how to provision a ControlDomain (CDOM) and detach the PCIe buses that are not required by the CDOM forI/O operations. By detaching the buses we have the opportunity to createanother I/O domain if required. We’ll also show you how to add a PCIe Bus tothe CDOM. We have a factory-default Sparc T5-2 server, which means bydefault a CDOM is already installed and it has all resources allocated to...
