Solaris 11 express and OVM 3

Is someone succeed to install solaris express 11 in PV mode with OVM 3.0.1.
I Can install my solaris express 11 in PVM with Oracle VM 2.2.2 but no success with OVM 3.
PS : In Oracle VM 3.0.1 Release notes only OEL and RHEL are supported for PVM guest but I don't understand why this works fine for OVM 2 and not for OVM 3 ?
Thank U.

I Can install my solaris express 11 in PVM with Oracle VM 2.2.2 but no success with OVM 3.Solaris 11 doesn't support PVM mode on either Oracle VM 2.2.2 or Oracle VM 3.0.1, so it shouldn't work at all. It should only work in HVM or HVPVM mode.

  • Solaris 10 vs Solaris Express

    I'm a newbie here. My basic question follows: what is the difference between Solaris and Open Solaris(Solaris Express)? Which of them would you suggest for building a java development environment?

    Actually there are actually 3 versions. Solaris 10, Solaris express and open solaris.
    Solaris 10 is the production version.
    Solaris express is snapshots of the solaris 11 development work.
    Theres also solaris express developer environment (SXDE) which is solaris express with the developer tools preinstalled.
    Open solaris is the community project where the real development takes place.
    As a development environment I would probably recommend going with SXDE but if your apps are going to be deployed in production on solaris 10 boxes, you probably need a solaris 10 box for deployment testing..

  • Solaris Express Zone install error with SUNWiiimr and SUNWcnetr

    Hi all,

    -newzone- was configured to be a whole root zone. Are there any ways to solve these installation errors?
    Thanks in advance.

    This problem seems some strange - this time with Solaris 10u4, from 10 containers installed on a brand new X2200 (2x cpu) only one do not output those errors, but just this one cannot install the dsee or proxy. This time the errors were from:
    Installation of <SUNWxwplr> on zone <dsee-proxy> partially failed.
    Installation of <SUNWdtdmr> on zone <dsee-proxy> partially failed.
    Installation of <SUNWmconr> on zone <dsee-proxy> partially failed.
    Installation of <SUNWrmwbr> on zone <dsee-proxy> partially failed.
    Installation of <SUNWlvmr> on zone <dsee-proxy> partially failed.
    Installation of <SUNWzebrar> on zone <dsee-proxy> partially failed.
    So the machine was, too, just installed. After several hours, anoter atempt to install a zone, this time just this one, returned no errors - and the dsee installed without any complains. All configurations were for whole root zones. Used was Solaris 10u4 with the most recent patch cluster applied.

  • Differences between Soalris and Solaris Express /Developer Edition

    Thank you for readingn my post
    What is different between Solaris Express (Developer Edition) and solaris OS?
    Are they the same and with same capabilities?
    Can I install S1 Grid suite in a Express edition?

    Solaris 10 (with several updates) is the current release version of the Solaris operating system.
    Since the release in '05, Sun has been developing the "next" version of Solaris. Using the OpenSolaris code as a base, this version is codenamed "Nevada". Periodic builds of this version are available as Solaris Express. So you get more up-to-date drivers, features, and bugs from it. Because it's under development, there are no patches. Instead you'd need to upgrade to the next release (or create your own patch).
    I haven't looked specifically at S1 Grid, so it very likely will install. However installations on Solaris Express may not be a supported configuration if you need that.

  • Unable to play audio video files in solaris express

    I am unable to play mp3 and avi files in my newly installed oracle solaris express. I have installed 'gnome-audio', 'gnome-media', 'gstreamer', 'gstramer/plugin/gnonlin' packages. I have even installed 'IPSFWmpeg' MPEG-1 liabrary from sunfreeware repository. All these softwares are shown as installed packages in my package manager. But still on playing any video in totem movie player or audio file in rhythmbox player, a dialog box with an error message is displayed "The playback of this movie requires a MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder plugin which is not installed".
    What should i do to play avi files in Totem movie player and mp3 files in Rhythmbox music player? Please don't suggest other media players because i want to use only above said totem and rhythmbox and i want to know what's wrong with my software installations?

  • No gnome in Solaris Express 11?

    I have installled Solaris Express 11 (sol-11-exp-201011-text-x86.iso) on VMWare.
    After installation I have discovered that there is no GUI.
    Have I installed incorrect image? Or maybe Sol 11 doesn't have gnome?

    Try "pkg search gnome" - this will search the online repository for gnome packages. The install CD does not contain a full set of packages - it just gets Sol 11 Express up and running. Use the pkg command to install the rest.

  • A problem logging in in Solaris Express Developer Edition 05/07

    Hi all.
    I just upgraded Solaris 10 11/06 to Solaris Express Developer Edition 05/07 on a Sun Ultra 20 M2 and a strange problem arose: after root has logged in in a Gnome session, then when another user tries to log in in Gnome everything slows down: the login screen with "Window manager" takes some 20 secs to go away and then "Panel" sticks there... The only option is killing X with ctrl+alt+backspce. This only happens if root logs in with Gnome, and not in CDE. If root doesn't log in, nothing strange happens ever.
    The problem seems unrelated with the user that logs in:
    - existing users which could login in Solaris 10 11/06 now have this problem
    - new users have this problem too...
    Rebooting the machine and never logging in to Gnome with root "solves" the problem.
    Has anyone ever had this problem?
    Can be a problem relating to upgrading?

    You should probably direct SXDE queries to the forums at, more chance of a response from the JDS developers there.

  • Solaris Express, Dev. Edition 2/07 install problem

    Im trying to install the solaris express developer edition 2/07 dvd i got in the mail.
    Everything goes fine until i have to set up the hard drive for installation. I have two hard drives, 1 SATA (Server 2003), and a 20Gb IDE for this Solaris install.
    When i click next to start installing, it drops out with an error against Solaris Software. the error is as follows:
    ERROR: Could not create Fdisk partition table.
    ERROR: Could not label disks
    ERROR: Could not update disks with new configuration
    ERROR: System installation failed
    Pfinstall failed. Exit stat = [email protected]
    sing existing Solaris fdisk partition (c2d1)
    Im not a nub to linux but i have never used solaris and its been a few years since i've touched it - but im familiar with console.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. =D

    You do not supply more comprehensive info on Your hardware. Therefore I would like to suggest quite conservative approach.
    1. First of all it will be helpful to get from SUN's website the "Install check tool". It is an image (bootable CD) of diagnostic soft.
    2. Disable in Bios the SATA disk.
    3. Boot the computer with "Install_check_tool" CD inserted into the drive. I hope that this diagnostics will be OK.
    4. Restart the computer and start Solaris installation. You can perform this step directly after step no. 2. Now Bios will see only IDE disc and installation should proceed OK. If not - supply more info on Your hardware and resulting (in this situation) diagnostics.
    Good luck!

  • GIMP on Solaris Express CD Set

    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
    I want to run newer version of GIMP preferably at least 2.4. My current Solaris version is Solaris 10, Jan 2005 version. I ordered Solaris Express 11 x86 core and, 6 CD set since I was not looking forward to download free GTK libs to set up a local build environment for GIMP since it would take at least an entire day to get GIMP working using my dial up modem.
    I have several questions about Solaris Express 11x86 OS/Application Set
    1. Does it still use familiar GRUB 0.9X as boot loader? I am not familiar with GRUB 2.x
    2. Would my old Star Office 8 install on Solaris Express 11x86 OS
    3. Would the new version of GIMP comes with Solaris Express 11x86 would install on old
    Solaris 10 of January 2005 version?
    4. Since Graphics and Audio editing programmes runs better when swap and /tmp slices on the
    second physical disk. Can I at least make Solaris 10 and Solaris Express share these
    spaces ? I give 12GB for /usr 16GB for /opt and 4GB for / and 16GB for /export/home on
    one primary partition on fist disk and /tmp and swap on another 4 GB primary partition on the
    second disk.
    I would appreciate yourkind advice and time.

    I think that you should take a look on [|] and search for pkg-get utility. It's similar to apt-get (solve dependencies). And I believe they should have a newer version of gimp. I have been using this repository a lot when I was using Solaris 10.
    It won't mess up your old libs &etc. Everything is installed into /opt/csw.

  • Experience with Solaris 10 and 11 on Oracle VM 3.0.3?

    We are trying to confirm with "first hand experience" how/if Oracle VM 3.0.3 supports Solaris 10 and 11 x86. For example, a) does OVM support Solaris as advertised? b) if yes, are there caveats excluding the HVM limitations? c) have you been able to use the Solaris Templates?
    Thank you,

    I ran into the same problem. Tried manually create software raid using the shell (ctrl F2 or F4), but it keeps shutting down the software raid and anaconda would die.
    Then I tried to use single disk but with logical volume (also set up manually from the shell). But after the installation, the system would not boot. Looking at the init script content in the initrd, I don't think it supports lvm.
    So I went back to square one, using the one disk with no lvm, but customized partition size. Will use raidder to build a raid 1 after this.
    Base on this experience installing the server, and also the VM Manager, I think Oracle VM is seriously going downhill. I can't believe how they would hire anyone that writes such poor quality installation scripts and package. Try mounting the VM Manager ISO under /tmp/mnt and install from there and you will see what I mean.

  • Solaris Express installation experience

    Hi folk,
    I want to add to my previous post about not getting the graphical installer to work at all due to the notorious
    nVidia bug in Xorg.
    I have now tried the console install thats supplied as a backup method in Express.
    I got through all the sections, installed everything and then got an error that it could not install
    the boot blocks, and attempting to boot gives a Bad PBR error.
    My first attempt at installing in this manner was to have a drive split between Windows and Solaris, and with this error, I thought.. OK, I'll dedicate the entire drive to Solaris and try installing again.. this i did, but the same error
    continued to haunt me.
    No matter what I did, it cannot install to the boot block and thus renders Solaris Express useless to me.
    system specs:
    AMD64 on nForce4 Ultra motherboard
    2 Gigs physical DDR400 memory
    256MB Legend GeForce 6800GS Video
    1x IDE 320GB Seagate Harddrive ( This was to be the Solaris drive, and is first on the list in BIOS )
    1x SATA 180GB Hitachi Harddrive ( Windows XP Pro boot drive )

  • Solaris Express Developer x86 -- only 64-bit?

    Hi, people, glad to be back. Just downloaded Solaris Express Developer edition x86 and installed -- almost with no problems.
    It's a system with Intel Celeron D with 64-bit and Hyper Threading support, DDR2 1Gb.
    Now running Solaris I noticed it's a 64-bit version, not 32-bit, as I meant to have. The command `isainfo -n` gives back ... "amd64"!
    Is there a 32-bit version of Solaris Express DE x86?
    Or maybe I need not worry at all and keep running the 64-bit one (actually, I've got no problem as yet)?
    Thanks in advance for any comments.

    So, my system supports 64-bit computing after all. I
    never thought about it, in fact.
    But does it mean Solaris Express DE x86 runs as
    64-bit on the systems supporting 64-bit, and as
    32-bit on 32-bit-only systems?Yes, that's correct. Solaris 10 was the first version of Solaris to support 64 bit operation on the x86 architecture.
    It and later versions (including Solaris Express DE x86) should automatically detect the architecture and run in that mode at boot time. There are some ways to force it to run in 32 bit mode only if necessary, but that would be unusual.
