Hi Sheejith,

To find out the available cells on the server
#parstatus -Av

add the free cell using parmodify command

#parmodify -p -a ::ri:

reboot for reconfiguration
#shutdown -Ry o

Re: Need to add cells in NPAR

Hello,

You did not specify which version of HP-UX
is used.

If it is HP-UX 11.31 Sep 2008 or newer,
you can use Dynamic nPar Cell Migration
procedure.

Three commands to add a cell dynamically
(no downtime):

# parmodify -p 0 -a 0:floating:y::100%
# parolrad -a 0
# olrad -A -s 0

These three commands above were actually
used in one of the HP-UX coutrses I taught
so they are real-life examples...

Cheers,

Re: Need to add cells in NPAR

Hi,

Pelase see the available cells using

#parstatus -AC

then choose a cell that to be added.

use
#parmodify -p -a cell:cellnumber:base:y::100%

Base <-- can be used as floating instead depending upon the version avail.

#parolrad -a
#olrad -s
#shutdown -Ry now

Ensure that you give spacing between the inputs given as required. Missing a space or : may not allow you to be succeeded.

Re: Need to add cells in NPAR

Command syntax you are using is wrong.

Try the below syntax.

parmodify -p0 -a 3:base:y:ri:50% -B

where 3 is the cell number..no need to specify cell:cell nu:

base is cell type

y - whether to use the new cell on next boot

ri - reactivate with memory interleave.

50% - amount of CLM

-B is to boot the new nPar after a Shutdown -Ry 0
