BMC Discovery 11.1
BMC Discovery 11.1, 10.x, 9.x
While discovering Solaris Servers, Hardware Vendor (Manufacturer) information is collected for Global zone servers but is not discovered for local (Non Global) Zone Servers Why ?
Does ADDM retrieve model and manufacturer for Solaris global and local zones ?
The assumptions here are that "local zone" = "non-global zone" and "Manufacturer" = "Hardware Vendor". Discovery will return a value for Hardware Vendor for the global zone, but not for non-global zones. This is because Manufacturer information is obtained from the command "prtdiag" which can't be run inside a non-global zone.
Defect DRUD1-16735 was submitted to improve Manufacturer discovery for non-global zone servers. A fix is included in Discovery 11.2.
Discovery will attempt to get the model for both global and non-global zones. For non-global zones, Discovery uses the "uname" command. Examples include "Sun Fire 280R" (SPARC) and the generic "i86pc" (for a non-global zone running in VMWare on x86 hardware).
