How To: Discover an Oracle SPARC T5 Server

When you're deploying new hardware, it's helpful to have as specific a plan as possible. For instance, it's good to know how to run a discovery in Ops Center, but if you have a guide that specifically explains how to discover the type of hardware that you're installing, that makes your job even simpler.

With that in mind, we put together a How-To that explains how to discover new Oracle SPARC T5 servers. It walks you through creating IPMI and SSH credentials, creating a discovery profile, and running it to discover the new system or systems. It also gives you pointers to the asset management and hardware management chapters in the feature guide, which provide a broader range of information about discovering and managing hardware.

How To: Migrating Virtual Machines

One of the big advantages of using Oracle VM Server for x86 or SPARC is the ability to migrate virtual machines. If two Oracle VM Servers are grouped together in a server pool under one Oracle VM Manager, you can perform a live migration to move an Oracle VM to a new server without shutting it down. This can be handy if you need to perform maintenance on one of the Oracle VM Servers but want to minimize the impact.

We've put together a How-To that walks you through a live migration of an Oracle VM and explains the prerequisites and roles required. It also gives you a pointer to some additional resources - the Feature Reference Guide has chapters about Oracle VM Servers for x86 and Server Pools, and the How-To library has a few other How-Tos that relate to VM management.
