Using MPxIO and Veritas [43482]
in Ops Center

Doug Schwabauer writes, "Enterprise Manager Ops Center has a rich feature set for Oracle VM Server for SPARC (LDOMs) technology. You can provision Control Domains, service domains, LDOM guests, control the size and properties of the guests, add networks and storage to guests, create Server Pools, etc. The foundation for many of these features is called a Storage Library. In Ops Center, a Storage Library can be Fiber Channel based, iSCSI based, or NAS based.

For FC and iSCSI-based LUNs, Ops Center only recognizes LUNS that are presented to the Solaris Host via MPxIO, the built in multipathing software for Solaris. LUNs that are presented via other MP software, such as Symantec DMP, EMC Power Path, etc., are not recognized.

Quick and Dirty iSCSI between Solaris 11.1 targets and a Solaris 10 Initiator [43216]
Solaris as a storage server

"I recently found myself with a support request to do some research involving looking at the results of removing vdevs from a pool in a recoverable way while doing operations on the pool.

My initial thought was to make the disk devices available to a guest ldom from a control ldom, but I found that Solaris and LDOMS coupled things too tightly for me to do something which had the potential to cause damage..."
