Re: Server Partitioning

Hi dave,

the max. number of hard partitions (npar) is equal to the number of cellboards with connected I/O you have.
I assume you have two cellboards (?), then you can have two npars.
The rp8400 supports up to 4 npars, but then you need 4 cellboards and an external I/O Chassis ("IOX"), because the internal I/O is only connected to two cells (0 and 1).

Maybe virtual partition is an alternative for you (vpars). With this you can make 2 npars with each two vpars.

best regards
