How to determine vPar boot paths

I have an RX8640/11.31 system with 3 vPars. I have created a 4th vPar and need help determining where the boot paths reside on my SAN. fcmsutil can't find the fibre card, because there is no OS on the vPar. This is a production system and a reboot from the nPar is a last resort.

Re: How to determine vPar boot paths

As long as the HBA does not belong to a vPar or there is no running OS you probably cannot. You need to boot the installer and you will see the pathes.

Hope this helps!

Re: How to determine vPar boot paths

Thanks for the reply. I have an ioscan from the original nPar that doesn't show any devices or lunpaths configured:

ba 14 0/0/14 lba claimed
slot 7 0/0/14/1 pci_slot claimed
ba 15 0/0/14/1/0 PCItoPCI claimed
fc 12 0/0/14/1/0/4/0 fcd claimed
/dev/fcd12
fc 13 0/0/14/1/0/4/1 fcd claimed
/dev/fcd13
lan 14 0/0/14/1/0/6/0 iether

Does this indicate the SAN/Port configuration isn't complete?

Re: How to determine vPar boot paths

If there was no storage assigned, it can't be listed.

Why do you need this now?

You will see the path during installation anyway.

Hope this helps!
