I've seen good suggestions on how to work around if you're in on the "build" phase, but we have an implementation group that builds our frames out. Another group working on the virtuals, ldoms and non-global zones. We've gotten so "big" and "efficient" (not) with our thousands upon millions of server instances that no one seems to remember to tell us little SAs on the front line all those pesky details details. CMDB is used for the business side and little things like what physical frame/host/cd/sd is the ldom I'm logged into on are trivial and left out? When it's time for a change that requires access to the parent or host control domain or service domain, it takes an act of God to find someone that can put their finger on the right physical host. Can't count the number of times we've found out the hard way when a site engineer (hands/feet) trips over the wrong cable in China. Watching the keno-patter n | of red boxes light up amongst all the green on monitor I usually turn to my coworker and tell him to "pay up" - told you that's where that ldom was! | | I'm fed up and want to write a scan that will run with root priviledge to look "up" from inside our logical domains and non-global zones to find the parents name / IP / host system / something tangible (or even obscure - I'll do a resolve after against something). I need to know the hook to look for.
Haven't used LDOMs, but with ngz it's trivial. You can just write or mount files from the global zone to the ngz: # zonecfg -z foo zonecfg:foo> info fs fs: dir: /etc/globalzone special: /etc/nodename raw not specified type: lofs options: [ro,nodevices] Which, in the ngz, mounts the global's /etc/nodename as /etc/globalzone. I use this in my bash profile so I know which zone is on which host without doing a lookup in our groups database: [root@pride]:[~]# zlogin foo [Connected to zone 'foo' pts/11] Last login: Thu Oct 20 04:05:12 from logs Oracle Corporation SunOS 5.10 Generic Patch January 2005 [pride]:[root@foo]:[~]# if [ -e /etc/globalzone ] ; then GLOBAL="[`cat /etc/globalzone`]" fi PS1="$GLOBAL:[\u@\h]:[\w]\$PR " You can do the same for whatever piece of gz data you want. But you have to add these yourself; there's no magical way in an ngz to do it.
