    LDOM guest startup problem

    807567
      I have an LDOM environment that was working perfectly - until I booted the server. I'm still very new to LDOMs, and my only prior experience was setting these up a couple of months ago.

      When I try to boot any of the guests, I get:

      {0} ok boot
      WARNING: /virtual-devices@100/channel-devices@200/disk@0: Timeout receiving packet from LDC ... retrying

      WARNING: /virtual-devices@100/channel-devices@200/disk@0: Communication error with Virtual Disk Server using Port 0. Retrying.

      WARNING: /virtual-devices@100/channel-devices@200/disk@0: Timeout receiving packet from LDC ... retrying

      [...]

      ERROR: boot-read fail

      Can't open boot device

      {0} ok

      Here's the bindings:

          It's not 100% clear without seeing your service domain config, but I suspect you're using a ZVOL to hold the filesystem? You might find the zvol friendly name symlinks under /dev/zvol/ haven't been updated properly, so that LDOM is trying to open a zvol that doesn't exist. It's not the most useful error in the world, and it's a shame the LDOM software doesn't catch that one...

          export the pool, remove (or move) the /dev/rdsk/zpool and /dev/dsk/zpool directories and then reimport the pool. That's worked for me in the past.
