Can we run Ldom on X86 servers? or we can only run on Sparc machines? Also, ldom support solaris 10 right? IF we want to run solaris 8, do we need to run through global zone?

LDOMs are sparc only. However, there is equivalent technology for x86. Yes Solaris 10 supports LDOM, but not earlier. If you want to run Solaris 8 or Solaris 9, you need to run Solaris 10 and use a branded Soalris 8 or Solaris 9 zone.

Thank you very much. If I want to run LDOM, I can't run on x86 servers right?

Right. There is Oracle VM if you want to run on x86. Not exactly the same but equivalent technology.

LDOM can only be run on SPARC-T server series (sun4v), not for all SPARC, nor for x86, so LDOM can't be run on x86. But Zones or XEN can be run on X86.
