Adding additional Memory in vpar (Web1)

Dear,

There are two vpars (Web1, MQ2) in npar3 in Cell5 of SD32. We have physically installed 8GB memory in Cell5.

Now, we want to add new 8GB memory in one vpar (Web1). Our vpar version is:

A.04.03.03 HP-UX Virtual Partitions

We need to know step by step procedure to add additional 8GB memory in vpar (Web1).

Thanks & Kind Regards,

Re: Adding additional Memory in vpar (Web1)

For static memory do

# vparmodify -p vpar-name -a mem::value_to_add

e.g.


# vparmodify -p Web1 -a mem::8192

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Adding additional Memory in vpar (Web1)

Dear,

Thanks for your response.

I have checked the physicall installed memory (8GB) by running command
vparstatus -A and showing ILM available 7741.

Please advise how much memory we can add like all memory 7741 or something less.

Secondly, our OS version is HPUX 11.23. So, is there anything to shutdown. I mean shutdown vpar or not. Please advise.

Screen shot is attached for your reference.

Thanks & Kind Regards,

Shutdown the vPar, add as much memory as you have, start the vpar. After adding, check with vparstatus command.

Hope this helps!

Re: Adding additional Memory in vpar (Web1)

Once you removed 2GB memory from Web1 and Web1 is running again, shutdown MQ and add the memory

Web1# vparmodify -p MQ -a mem::2048


This is your step-by-step procedure

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
