FAQ: Creating a new LDOM domain

I got a question about creating LDOM domains:

"I have a Server Pool set up, and I need to create a secondary LDom domain on a machine in the pool. When I click on the machine, though, the 'create logical domain' command is grayed out. The machine still has available CPU threads and free RAM. What's going on?"

This one has an easy answer. In a Server Pool, the Create Logical Domain action is under the pool's actions, rather than the individual machine's actions. This is because the Server Pool decides where to put the new domain based on the Server Pool's placement policy. So, in this case, you need to select the Server Pool in the Assets section, and then create the new domain from there.

Management Credentials

I got a question about the Management Credentials that are used for managing assets in Ops Center:

"If I change a set of credentials, does Ops Center propagate the changed credentials to all of the assets that use that set?"

The answer is yes.

To provide some additional explanation: each managed asset is linked to Management Credentials that are used to access it. You can have separate Management Credentials for every asset, or share one set for a group of assets that all have the same login credentials. If you change the credentials on the systems, you can edit the Management Credentials to make sure they match the new system creds. Any asset that's using that set of credentials will then automatically start using the new set.

The Feature Reference Guide has a section about Management Credentials that explains how to perform these procedures.
