I've gotten a couple more questions about the installation process for Ops Center.
"Can I install on any SPARC / X86 based platform?"
Ops Center can run on Oracle Solaris on either architecture, or on Linux. The Certified Systems Matrix lists the supported OSes, and the Linux and Solaris install guides go into more detail about the hardware and OS requirements.
"Can we install it on local zones or LDOMS?"
On the zone side, you can install the Enterprise Controller in a local zone. There are a few caveats, which are explained in the Preparing a Non-Global Zone section. You can also install a Proxy Controller in an Oracle Solaris 11 zone. Agent Controllers, which are the part of the infrastructure that's installed on managed systems, can be put on zones.
LDOMs are supported for every part of the Ops Center infrastructure.
"Do we need any dedicated network ports from all agent monitoring systems?"
Yes. The port requirements are covered in the Network Port Requirements and Protocols table, which is in the feature reference guide as well as in the install guides.
