Last updated on FEBRUARY 07, 2018
Applies to:Solaris Cluster - Version OSC 3.3 3/13 to OSC 4.3 [Release 3.3 to 4.3]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Does only apply for resource type version SUNW.ldom:5 or lower.
Does NOT apply for SUNW.ldom:6 or higher. (SC4.2 SRU4 deliver SUNW.ldom:6)
On Solaris Cluster 3.3 or 4.1 and later HA-Ldom data service (Oracle VM Server for SPARC) may fail to migrate 'live' resource configured with MIGRATION_TYPE=MIGRATE if the password file is not correctly setup.
The error message shows that normal failover will be performed and the result code return an error related to the password.
In this example the failover LDom is called 'fgd0'
The bug 15732240 introduced a new feature to provide an encrypted password
