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)

Symptoms

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.

 In this example the failover LDom is called 'fgd0'
