*1 Root domains can provide virtual devices.
*2 The system/ldoms and system/ldoms/ldomsmanager packages are required. These packages are included in group/system/solaris-large-server and group/system/solaris-small-server.
*3 The system/ldoms package is required. This package is included in group/system/solaris-large-server and group/system/solaris-small-server.
*4 If Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 is to run on the control domain, the CPUs that can be assigned to the control domain are those CPUs that are mounted on logical system boards with LSB numbers 0 to 7.
*5 This is not included in Oracle Solaris 10 1/13. Install it separately.
*6 There are no LSB number restrictions on the CPUs that can be assigned to a guest domain. The maximum number of CPUs (vcpus) in an Oracle Solaris 10 guest domain must not be greater than 1024.
*7 Additionally apply the required patches for a guest domain as described in the latest version of the Oracle VM Server for SPARC Installation Guide. A root domain that owns a PCIe bus cannot have its PCIe endpoint devices and SR-IOV virtual functions assigned to another logical domain.
*8 An additional procedure must be executed before installation of Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 or Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 on a guest domain. For details, see the procedure in "Notes on Installing Oracle Solaris 10 on a Guest Domain."
