Anybody doing LDom on Solaris Sparc?

Lazy Web-type question: has anybody tried out the brand new LDom functionality available in Solaris 10? From some googling around I've done, it seems Sun hasn't yet shipped the full-fledged LDom functionality in Solaris 10 version 11/06.

LDom seems like a cool way to partition some big Solaris Sparc boxes, if you have them. I wonder if the logical domains/virtual machines created with LDom can have Ubuntu installed on top of them (because Ubuntu supports Solaris Sparc).

Hi, LDom's aren't availabe quite yet. I heard the remaining software (OpenBoot firmware and OS utils) will be released at the end of this month.

I'll be trying it out as soon as I can, I'll probably put the django pybot builder in an ldom (it's in a zone now) for greater isolation.

Thanks, Matthew. Please keep the pybots list posted when you change your django buildslave to use ldom. I'm definitely interested to find out more about this.
