Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.6 Released

Jeff Savit
Product Management Senior Manager

We are pleased to announce the release of Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.6. This new release is integrated with Oracle Solaris 11.4 and provides new and enhanced features. These include

  • The new 'ldmconsole' command, which simplifies secure access to guest domain virtual consoles.
  • Improved Time Of Day clock handling, for consistent clock values over live migration.
  • The virtual SCSI Host Bus Adapter (vHBA) feature is enhanced to provide device masking, which lets administrators configure a virtual Storage Area Network (vSAN) device with an explicit set of SCSI devices.
  • Virtual networking enhancements, notably DLMP (Datalink Multipathing) aggregation support for virtual network devices, and improved network visibility
  • Improved SR-IOV feature to create multiple Virtual Functions (VFs) and name them in the same command.
  • Enhanced 'ovmtutils' template utilities
  • Removal of support for MAU (Modular Arithmetic Unit) for old T1-T3 servers that are no longer supported, and removal of ldm power management
