Resolving SPARC SuperCluster guest domains which have non-unique hostids (Doc ID 1507056.1)

Last updated on JUNE 11, 2020

Applies to:

SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)


All SPARC SuperCluster systems that were deployed by Oracle Advanced Customer Services prior to the 1st December 2012 are effected by Bug 15799001 - "SUNBT7178081 SSC guest ldoms hostids are not unique guest domains" which causes all SuperCluster guest domains to have the same hostid of 0x84b31095. Although this is a minor issue it may cause confusion with applications which use a licence tied to a hostid or sending in data to Oracle for support issues. All SPARC SuperCluster installations after this time will use automatically generated mac addresses / hostids during guest domain creation and are not effected by Bug 15799001.
