[ PCA ] Live Migration of Oracle Solaris Guest Results in Reboot in mixed-release Compute Node environments
Last updated on JANUARY 04, 2018
Applies to:Private Cloud Appliance - Version 2.3.1 and later
In a mixed-release* Oracle VM environment, when an attempt to live-migrate a virtual machine with Oracle Solaris as its guest operating system is made, there could be
problems due to the Compute Node (Oracle VM Server; "OVS") version.
Thus if a Private Cloud Appliance vm is live-migrated from a compute node running PCA release 2.3.1 or lower to a compute node running PCA release 2.3.2 or higher, the Oracle Solaris virtual machine will reboot.
The issue is the same with OVM in a non-PCA sytem: if a vm running Oracle Solaris is live-migrated to an OVS at 3.4.4 or newer, from a version prior to 3.4.4, Oracle Solaris will reboot.
