[LATE SUMMARY] Logical system partitions and Solaris 10

From: Sun List <sun_at_oryx.cc>

Sorry for the late summary.  I received one reply (thanks JV) posted 
below, and a lot of vacation notes from people who were on vacation.  
JV's reply and my original message are posted below.

I am assuming that I didn't receive many replies because my question 
was poorly worded.  Probably I should have wrote:

I want to play with logical system partitions for my own personal 
training, i.e. non commercial use.  I have access to a E3500.  If this 
will work, please let me know.  If not, what lower end system would be 
allow this.  I did look around at www.sun.com , but I didn't come 
across any documents as such as a HCL.  If you have a url where I can 
RTFM, I would appreciate it.

Thank you,

If I get any further with this, I will update my summary

mid range equipment e3800/e4800/e6800 can already do domaining.
If UE3500/4500/6500s can do domains, Sun is full of idiots because
then why would I upgrade to an e6800 when I can buy a dozen used
e6500s and make 120 virtual domains for the same price?

Don't know about Solaris 10 for SPARC, but with Solaris Express I got
the beta for Solaris 10/INTEL x86. Of course there are no domains for
x86 hardware, but I betcha domaining is for modern US-III/SunFire/PCI
stuff only. An e3500 is old, they came out in 1996. Let the poor old
dog rest in peace.
