Running Veritas Cluster File System on Guest LDOM

Created: 13 Nov 2012 • Updated: 04 Dec 2012 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am looking to implement Veritas CFS and I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to run this on a Guest LDOM rather than the controller.

Any idea if this is possible?

Have a look at the "Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions Virtualization Guide" from for the version you are using.  Below is an extract from 5.1 guide:

Logical Domains (LDoms) is a virtualization technology on the Solaris SPARC
platform that enables the creation of independent virtual machine environments
on the same physical system. This allows you to consolidate and centrally manage
your workloads on one system.
Veritas Storage Foundation supports Solaris Logical Domains in the following
two deployments models:
■ Split Storage Foundation stack
■ Guest-based Storage Foundation stack
Veritas Storage Foundation Cluster File System (SFCFS) is supported only in
the guest-based Storage Foundation stack.
6.0.1 doc ( has the same information, but LDOM is referred to new name of "Oracle VM Server for SPARC".

This configuration is fully supported when deploying the "In Guest" full CFSHA Stack as well as at the Control Domain. There are however best practices for using this type of cluster topology.  Please refer to the documents Mike mentioned above for more details. Please let us know if you need clarification on any of the LDom content.
