We are in the process of migrating our existing Ciscoworks LMS 3.2 server
to a new platform. We are going to be installing LMS on Solaris 10 and we'll be
installing LMS into a whole-root non-global zone.
1) Does Ciscoworks LMS 3.1 support Solaris 10 and the use of virtual zones?
2) Are there any special (or different) installation procedures that must be used to install LMS into a Solaris Zone?
We actually tried running the standard installation script yesterday, but the scripts
tried installing different components into different zones...and basically the whole process was catastrophic.
is information on cisco.com which clearly indicates that Solaris 10
virtualization is supported by LMS 3.1...but I cannot find any
installation information. Are there any installation procedures that
must be followed for installing LMS into a Solaris virtual zone? Are
there steps that must be taken to tell LMS which zone to use?
1. Yes, it does.
2. No. I did the install of 3.2 on a whole-root non-global zone in our lab, and it works beautifully. I even did it on ZFS, and everything works just fine. Once the zone is installed and running, you can SSH to it, telnet to it, or just use zlogin, then follow the standard install procedure.
It sounds like you're not doing the install from within the zone. I did it through SSH. When I SSH to the zone, it's as if I've SSH'd to a separate machine. The zone itself can only see itself. It has no concept of the global zone, or other non-global zones.
Just pretend the zone is a separate base-metal machine, and LMS should install without a hitch.
