Question Virtual Machine over Solaris 11


Hello,

Im trying t virtuaize an CentOS over Solaris 11.
I already did many times a VM with Other Solaris over it, but I am actualy trying to put CentOs And other VM with Windows. Am I able to do this ? Could someone help me with my problem?

#what i already did first with CentOS:
ldm add-vdsdev /dev/zvol/dsk/rzpool/vdisk/centos-ldom1.hdd0 cent.hdd0@primary-vds
ldm add-vdisk cent cent.hdd0@primary-vds centos-ldom1
ldm set-variable auto-boot\?=false centos-ldom1

wget http://centos.ufms.br/7/isos/x86_64/...al-1503-01.iso (Site centos verso mais atual)
ldm add-vdsdev /opt/CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1503-01.iso iso@primary-vds
ldm add-vdisk iso iso@primary-vds centos-ldom1
ldm bind-domain centos-ldom1

ldm start-domain centos-ldom1
telnet localhost 5000

precione "Enter"

It looks like you are trying to install an x86 OS on SPARC hardware. This is doomed.

Question

I took this version from the site of Centos - It says x86 64 bits. (http://wiki.centos.org/Download)
My solaris is actualy 64 bits.

root@solaris:~# isainfo -b
64

The Centos version is the minimal and i think is fine, but i dont know how to install this and the Windows also.

Am I doing something wrong? How can i install this? I have to install this in this week =(

Please use complete words, your last post is difficult to decipher.

In any case, despite being available in 64 bit, SPARC and x86 are totally different beasts. Their instruction set is 100% incompatible.

What you are attempting to do won't work, by design.

I guess we would need to know more about the hardware before we venture any more guesses. Is it a Sun or Oracle computer?

100%

It can hardly be anything but a Sun/Oracle UltraSPARC-T based server.
  • The machine supports OpenBoot ({0} ok devalias) so it isn't an x86, BIOS based platform.
  • The OP ran the "ldm" command which is only supported with ldoms.
  • Virtual devices (disk, network, console) are reported to be present, this is also typical of a sun4v based server.

Thanks for the % typo.

Did you read my previous answers ?

Oracle VM for SPARC is already installed in your server. Don't be confused by its name. It is a very different product than either Oracle VM for x86 or Oracle VM VirtualBox.

If you happen to find a Centos distribution built for a 64 bit SPARC, which will probably be quite challenging, you might attempt to install it. See https://blogs.oracle.com/martinm/ent...on_sparc_ldom1 for a similar experience.
Installing Windows is just doomed. There is no way outside a pure emulation solution like bochs, and a lot of time to debug/fix it.

The executive summary is: No, it is not possible.

I saw something with zonecfg. Neither in this case can i install these OS?

So, I have made a search in the documents of the Oracle.
#Oracle VM
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/pt...iew/index.html
download: (do not have access)
https://updates.oracle.com/Orion/Pat...h_num=20492222
Oracle VM is the server virtualization offering from Oracle Corporation. Oracle VM Server
for x86 incorporates the free and open-source Xen hypervisor technology, supports Windows,
Linux, and Oracle Solaris[2] guests and includes an integrated Web based management console.
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E35328_01/...arc-agent.html

#Oracle VM Virtual Box
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/se...iew/index.html
Freely available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris x-86 platforms.
http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu...UserManual.pdf
Oracle VM VirtualBox is a hypervisor for x86 computers from Oracle Corporation.
VirtualBox may be installed on an existing host operating system; it can create and manage guest virtual machines,
each with a guest operating system and its own virtual environment. Supported host operating systems
include Linux, OS X, Windows XP and later, Solaris, and OpenSolaris; there are also ports to
FreeBSD[5] and Genode.[6] Supported guest operating systems include versions and derivations
of Windows, Linux, BSD, OS/2, Solaris, Haiku and others.[7] Since release 3.2.0, VirtualBox also
allows limited virtualization of OS X guests on Apple hardware, though OSx86 can also be installed
using VirtualBox.

Sparc T3-1 doesn't have he same support?
The VM's have the support, but i cant do the VM's work on the Solaris.
Thats the problem.

Please read (again?) the provided answers. There is no point insisting.

I try not to assume stuff. While it turns out and I believed it was, the OP only had to confirm.

Not sure what the % deal is.

@jefro, there was enough evidence in the original question to take as a fact and not just assume the OP was confusing technologies.

Not sure to get your % deal remark. For some reason, I needed to duplicate the % for it to appear on my #5 posting, same for that one, the first one in that line need to be duplicated too ...

I doubt the world was hurt by me asking to confirm.

So do I :-) I probably should have made clearer in my first reply there was not any doubt about the OP hardware, and why.
