Logical Domain Mobility between Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris 2009.06
By Markus Weber on May 31, 2009
OpenSolaris 2009.06 is launched at CommunityOne West, San Francisco, on June 1 2009.
One of the new features or technologies is that now, OpenSolaris can run, and is supported, on UltraSPARC machines, which of course also includes the Sun T-Series servers, with the UltraSPARC T[1,2,2+] chips.
Why is that important ?
That means you now can configure and run Logical Domains, or LDoms, on an OpenSolaris 2009.06 machine, and use this OS as control, service, or guest domain.
This also means you can migrate domains (Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris 2009.06) from a machine running a Solaris 10 control domain, to machine running OpenSolaris 2009.06, and vice versa.
