Hi all,

Has anyone succeeded running FreeBSD on sun solaris LDOM? Solaris site claims they do support freebsd as ldom guest, but I cant even get the installer image to boot.

Thanks!

Cool Thread servers of sun have SUN4V processor architecture, so for that theres a special freebsd available.

http://www.freebsd.org/platforms/sun4v.html

Im not sure if it will work with T5240. As they say only T2000 and T1000 are supported and these machines have T1 processor whereas T5xxx have T2 processor.

But you must try and must post your feedback.

Regards

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I did try installing, but it fails. Surprisingly, installer boots fine however the break happens at the stage where you write new partition data to disk - scsi exceptions...
