you want to move a LAN card from one npar to another?

just remove the resource from the vpar configuration, shutdown the npar and remove the card. now put the card into the other npar, shutdown the appropriate vpar and do the modification/addition.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

HI Siva,


The vpar & npar basics u can't utilize any resourse for vpar's from the other Npar's.U will have down the vpar's & Npar's,remove the card & fix to the other Npar.Then add the resource to Vpar by using Vparmodify cmd

Hi Siva,

You can remove the I/O cards through OLAR (Online Addition And Replacement)with the OS up & running.

Eventhough u can remove the cards ONLINE through OLAR feature, for adding & deleting the I/O resources from the Vpar, your Vpar has to be down. For details pls see the man page of "vparresources".

Moving card from one n-par to other is not feasible without shutting down the npar.
we have to physically remove it from that npar and install it on the other npar. configuring npar we have to give SBA's, its not like vpar where we assign LBA's to the vpar's.
Time has a wonderful way of weeding out the trivial
