Oracle VM Server for SPARC (Solaris 10 Logical Domains) Administration
Duration: 1 Day
1 Day Onsite or 7-Hour Online Hands-On Training
Learn by doing. After Mick demonstrates a technique or procedure, you will practice it in workshop.
This intensive one-day course covers all the areas necessary to install and administrate the Oracle VM Server for SPARC software on CMT (Core Multi-Threaded) servers. It starts with server access configuration, followed by firmware issues, and then examines building the Solaris 10 OS and installing the latest Logical Domain Manager (LDOM) software.. This is followed by LDOM configuration of the Control and Service domains, and a variety of guest domains each running their own operating system. Further administration tasks such as changing domain resources are also covered.
