How to Remove Logical Domains and Services ? Oracle VM for SPARC

Destroying the infrastructure is a easy task in all the environments.In oracle VM for SPARC also ,you can  easily remove the guest domains in few seconds. The same way you can also remove the virtual disk resources and virtual network resources. In some cases you may not able to remove the resources if its in use or already bound to any guest domains. In this article ,we will see how to remove the guest domains and how to remove the virtual services like vds and vswitch.

Oracle VM for SPARC Tutorial:

1. Login to the control domain and list the available domains.

-bash-3.2# ldm ls-domain
NAME             STATE      FLAGS   CONS    VCPU  MEMORY   UTIL  UPTIME
primary          active     -n-cv-  SP      14    4128M    0.2%  8h 7m
ldom2            active     -t----  5000    2     6G        50%  4m
ldom2clone       active     -n----  5001    8     8G       0.1%  7h 26m

2.Halt the domain by logging in to the guest domain operating system. (init 5) . You can also perform the force shutdown from the control domain using the below command.

-bash-3.2# ldm stop-domain ldom2clone
LDom ldom2clone stopped

3.Un-bind the domain from the hypervisor.

-bash-3.2# ldm unbind-domain ldom2clone
-bash-3.2# ldm ls-domain
NAME             STATE      FLAGS   CONS    VCPU  MEMORY   UTIL  UPTIME
primary          active     -n-cv-  SP      14    4128M    6.8%  8h 8m
ldom2            active     -t----  5000    2     6G        50%  5m
ldom2clone       inactive   ------          8     8G
-bash-3.2#

4.Now you can remove the inactive guest domain from the hypervisor.

-bash-3.2# ldm remove-domain ldom2clone
-bash-3.2# ldm ls-domain
NAME             STATE      FLAGS   CONS    VCPU  MEMORY   UTIL  UPTIME
primary          active     -n-cv-  SP      14    4128M    0.2%  8h 10m
ldom2            active     -t----  5000    2     6G        50%  7m
-bash-3.2#

You can see ldom2clone has been removed from the hypervisor completely.

If you want to remove the specific resources from the guest domain,follow the below steps.

1. List the bounded resources for one of the guest domain. (ldom2)

-bash-3.2# ldm list-bindings ldom2
NAME             STATE      FLAGS   CONS    VCPU  MEMORY   UTIL  UPTIME
ldom2            active     -t----  5000    2     6G        50%  8m

    ldom2            primary-vcc0@primary        5000

2.Try to remove the one of the virtual disk resource from the guest domain.

-bash-3.2# ldm remove-vdisk uavdisk  ldom2
Please perform the operation while the LDom is bound or inactive
-bash-3.2# ldm remove-vdisk -f uavdisk  ldom2
Please perform the operation while the LDom is bound or inactive

You are not able to remove the virtual disk since its in use on ldom2.

3.You can stop the guest domain and then remove it .

-bash-3.2# ldm stop-domain ldom2
LDom ldom2 stopped
-bash-3.2# ldm remove-vdisk uavdisk  ldom2
-bash-3.2#
-bash-3.2# ldm list-bindings ldom2

We have seen how to remove the assigned virtual disk from the guest and removing the disk from the virtual disk server.

Now we will see how to remove the complete service from the service domain aka primary domain.
1.Try to remove the virtual switch service from service domain

-bash-3.2# ldm remove-vsw primary-vds0
Service is active and being used by bound client(s)
Failed to remove virtual switch

2.The above command failed because,that virtual service is used for some of the guest domains. First remove the those assigned virtual resources from guest domain the n try to remove it.

-bash-3.2# ldm remove-vsw primary-vsw0
-bash-3.2# ldm list-services

Using the same setup commands (showed in this article), you can remove the other guest domains and virtual services.

Once you have cleared the all services and domains, you can uninstall the oracle VM for SPARC software using below method.
