Do we need to stop the full sd3200 to change REO link cables

Hi,

 

We have a SD3200 with hp-ux 11.11, and lets say we have 2 partitions in the SD:

 

partition 0: cell 0,1,2,3 iochasis 0-0-1 0-1-3

partition 1: cell 4,5,6 iochassis 0-1-1 0-1-3

 

And cell 7 isn't used, now we need to create a new partition. the problem is cell7 doesn't have a io chassis connected. So we need to remove a io-chassis from partition 0(0-1-3 hardware not in use) and add it to the new partition 2. To make this change we have to change the reo cables from cell 2 that is attached to 0-1-3, and connect them to cell7.

 

My question is, is it ok only to stop partition 0 and partition 2, or do I have to stop the hole SD to make this changes in the reo cables ?.

 

Thanks

 

 

Windows?, no thanks

According to the documentation you should shutdown and power off the cabinet. Consider to get help from HP support, they will test the connection between cell and I/O before going productive.

Hope this helps!

Hi, Torsten, no support on a couple of parisc SDs we have left.

 

Bad news, if we have to stop the full dome, I have Just configured on the A500 sms of the SD, to run tests before starting, being able to read Justs cryptic output is another thing!.

 

Thanks

I would power down the complex, relocate the cables, verify with "just", start the complex and create the new nPar.

Hope this helps!
