Ldom vdisk backend  from NFS Share

Currently Being Moderated

I was trying to add a NFS share for Ldom virtual disk but its not working following are the steps which i used

1. I 'm using Ldom Manager 2.1 with latest firmware on my T5220.

2. Created a zfs dataset on a server with ample storage.

#zfs list emcpool1/vol09
emcpool1/vol09 30.0G 238G 30.0G /VMshare

3. Share the /VMshare with nfs and export.

#showmount -e nfs_server
export list for nfs_server
/VMshare (everyone)

4. Use automount to mount /VMshare on my T5220

#ls -lth
total 62922707
-rw------T 1 root root 30G Sep 1 08:58 boot.img

T5220_Primary# pwd

5. Trying to add the boot.image from the nfs export as virtual disk device but get following error though the share is accessible via automount w/o any issues.

# ldm add-vdsdev /net/nfs_server/VMshare/boot.img disk1@primary-vds0
Path /net/nfs_server/VMshare/boot.img is not valid on service domain primary

df -h .
Filesystem size used avail capacity Mounted on
268G 30G 238G 12% /net/nfs_server/VMshare

I have read in no. of blogs/articles that we can add the nfs based disk backend but none shows the command ..

Can any one plz tell me if its possible and if yes then what i 'm doing wrong .. any help would be appreciated.
