How to Create a LDOM in Solaris 11
This article explains how to create a ldom in Solaris 11. This is the first of a series of tutorials to teach users how to set up LDOMs on their systems. Before you get started, make sure you have installed and configured Solaris 11.
A guest domain is a virtual machine on your host that runs an instance of the operating system. Unlike a normal virtual machine, this guest domain cannot run any user applications or processes. You need a guest domain with a few basic packages in order to run the operating system. You need to have login credentials of Oracle support in order to download these packages. Then, copy these files to your Solaris host.
You can add auto-boot? and boot-device variables to the guest domain. The examples above set auto-boot? to true and boot-device to vdisk. Once you’ve created a guest domain, you can use telnet localhost 5000 to connect to it. In the same way, you can connect to the console “ldom01” through telnet.
