Starting with the Logical Domains 1. But to my surprise, I get more and more requests to explain how they work or to give advise on how to make good use of them. Next, I assigned 16 vCPUs on this platform, a T, that’s two cores to the primary domain, freeing the rest up ih future guest systems. Now we can also do a jumpstart installation of the guest domain. We will later use these to connect virtual disks and virtual network ports of our guest systems to real world storage and network.

Connecting to console “ldom01” in group “ldom01” In a first step, after we’ve installed the software, let’s start the virtual console service and downsize the primary domain.

LDOM Oracle VM for SPARC – Tutorial 1 – UnixArena

The primary domain has all of the resources and before we will be able to allocate resources to other Logical domains we ldomd need to remove some from the primary domain. Likewise, memory is assigned exclusively to individual guests.
