Superdome Partition/Cells reconfigure: online?

Hi,

I have a superdome with 4 partitions and 6 cells.(2 npar with 2 cells, and 2 with one cell each).
I want to reconfigure 2 partitions as follow:
* remove a cell from a 2 cell npar.
* add the cell to another "one cell" npar.

I think that this could be done via the GSP commands, or using the parmodify command.
My question is: is there a step by step guide for this and do I need a reboot (downtime) for this?

Thanks,
Farid.

Removal and addition of a cell from npar can not be done online, downtime has to be scheduled. parmodify can be executed online however changes will be effective after reboot.

Please refer the following odc, may be useful for you:

Assalam-O-Alaikum Farid,

You can perform this task using the BCH interface, HP-UX commands, or Partition Manager and for this task you need downtime, and see the below link for more detail.
