Although Oracle decided to stop support of latest LDOMs on T2000 
systems, I seem to remember? you need the latest version of OBP for the 
last supported version and also if you wanted to run Sol 11, though that 
may have been to support the http boot over the network or some other 
feature that Sol 11 has over Sol 10. (I did not spend any time looking 
just remember it saying it needed to be updated).
