Solaris, live migragtion on failover instead of stop/start of LDOMs

Hi all,

I have the following setup:

  • Solaris 11.3 SPARC
  • LDM 3.3
  • VCS 7.1
  • 3x SPARC T5-2 Servers
  • 2x  I/O domains per system

From Visualization Guide about Failover scenarios:

Domain state:

Control domain Alternate I/O VCS behavior
Up Up No fail over
Up Down No fail over
Down Up Fail over*
Down Down Fail over**

* VCS behavior would be “No fail over” with service group in auto-disabled state if
the LDom resource attribute DomainFailurePolicy for the control domain is set to
“ignore” and the LDom service group attribute SysDownPolicy is set to
“AutoDisableNoOffline”.
** VCS behavior would be “No fail over” with service group in auto-disabled state
if the LDom resource attribute DomainFailurePolicy for the control and other I/O
domain is set to “ignore” and the LDom service group attribute SysDownPolicy is
set to “AutoDisableNoOffline”

So far so good, but VCS doesn't triggers the Live Migration, instead Logical Domain stops on one system and starts on another.

Is here the possibility to change the behavior from stop/start to migrate?

AFAIK, the Oracle (Sun) Cluster can do that after clrs set -p Migration_type=MIGRATE ldom1-rs

Thank you!
