Why is this? I am not using any zones (global only), so memory capping doesn't seem to be the answer and all the DIMM modules show as enabled with no faults when digging into this from the ILOM.

  • Post the contents of /etc/system. Are there any physmem entries in it? See docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/817-0404/chapter2-2/index.html Also post the output from the fmadm faulty command. See docs.oracle.com/cd/E23824_01/html/821-1451/glisy.html – Andrew Henle Mar 23 '17 at 9:44
  • grep physmem /etc/system yields no output and so does fmadm faulty. In fact, it looks like every line in /etc/system has a * at the beginning, which I assume means the whole thing is commented. Please let me know if you still want it posted. – codenaugh Mar 27 '17 at 2:19
  • OK, what's the output from lgrpinfo? – Andrew Henle Mar 28 '17 at 9:56
  • I do not have that command on this machine... – codenaugh Mar 29 '17 at 18:16
  • What version of Solaris do you have installed? What's the output from uname -a and the contents of /etc/release? – Andrew Henle Mar 30 '17 at 9:16

Looks like you're on an ldom, likely a primary.

Post the output of "virtinfo -a". You're on a T6320 host which has SparcVM capability.

"ldm ls" and "ldm ls-spconfig" might also provide some useful info.

  • no ldm... root@alfred:/root# virtinfo -a Domain role: LDoms control I/O service root Domain name: primary Domain UUID: c58a9712-8aa1-40cf-fb61-9ed6fa814c41 Control domain: alfred Chassis serial#: 0111APO-0932YG03E8 – codenaugh Apr 3 '17 at 16:48
  • Absolutely LDM. You have a primary domain controller with IO services available. – cachonfinga Apr 4 '17 at 18:54
  • From memory "ldm -V" should get you the version of sparc VM you are using, I suggest you read the manual from the Oracle support website. Try sparc vm administration guide ini your favourite search engine and work from there. You also failed to post output of ldm ls and ldm ls-spconfig - please do so. – cachonfinga Apr 4 '17 at 19:00
  • I'm not using a VM........root@alfred:/root# ldm -V -bash: ldm: command not found – codenaugh Apr 4 '17 at 20:58
  • virtinfo says you are. Check your $PATH. – cachonfinga Apr 6 '17 at 18:34
