Solaris Hangs After Enabling Resource Pools on SPARC T-series Systems

(Doc ID 1529254.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 18, 2013

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 10 10/08 U6 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)


Solaris hangs after enabling resource pools - see pooladm(1M).  The hang may not occur immediately.  A crash dump taken with the system in this state will show all CPUs idle in function pause_cpus() during an operation to move a CPU between processor sets, e.g. via function pool_pset_xtransfer().


Resource pools were enabled, either during boot using configuration in /etc/pooladm.conf or via pooladm(1M).
