Virtual Disk on Oracle VM Server for SPARC (LDoms) Missing with Certain Patch/SRU
Last updated on NOVEMBER 15, 2016
Applies to:Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 10 1/13 U11 to 11.1 [Release 10.0 to 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When this issue happens, guest domains cannot see virtual disks. If the boot disk is not seen, the guest domains fail to boot.
Also error messages like the following are seen in the IO domain (either control domain or service domain) that exports the virtual disks.
vd_setup_vd() returns error 5 (EIO) following the vd_setup_XXX() error. (XXX can be single_slice_disk, full_disk, etc. depending on the backend device type.)
This issue can occur when IO domain's release is as follows:
- Solaris 10 with patch 150400-05 and without patch 150400-11
- Solaris 11.1 with SRU 11.4 and without SRU 17.5
