Oracle VM: Troubleshooting OVS agent issues after Motherboard /Service-Processor Replacement in SPARC Servers (Doc ID 2222724.1)

Last updated on MAY 16, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.3.1 to 3.3.5 [Release OVM33]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)


The LDOM configurations are stored in 'Host Data Flash' of the server. The location of the Host Data Flash is either on Motherboard or Service Processor in the Server.  

A planned Motherboard or Service Processor replacement in SPARC servers is expected to preserve the LDOM configuration.

However, Sometimes the original SP configurations are lost during Motherboard or SP replacement.

A Server started with incorrect spconfig will not join the pool as the ovs-agent will not become online.

If a Server fails to join the pool due these reasons after a Motherboard or SP replacement, Please use the following steps to troubleshoot and recover.
