Re: add anew cll in RX8640

Hi,

The link below will provide you with details about adding a new cell into an existing nPar:

http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01868281/c01868281.pdf

#man parmodify

Start reading from page 180.

Starting with hpux 11.31, you can add cell to an nPar online:

Dynamic nPartitions is an optional feature introduced with the September 2007 Operating Environment Update Release.

Re: add anew cll in RX8640

You mean, physically inserting a new cell in rx8640, or on the OS level?

at the OS level...

Re: add anew cll in RX8640

#parstatus -AC

to identify any available inactive cell

Now add that cell let'sa say cell4 to that nPar, let's say npar0:

#parmodify -p 0 -a 4:::

Reboot-for-reconfig afterwards, so # shutdown -R -y 0

If it's 11.31, as I said above, this can be done online:

Re: add anew cll in RX8640

Hi HeMou,

 

Please find the steps for adding new cell to an nPar.

 

Assigning (Adding) Cells to an nPartition

Adding cells to an nPartition involves selecting available cells (those not currently assigned to an nPartition) and assigning them to an existing nPartition. Both the selected cells and any I/O chassis connected to the
cells are assigned to the designated nPartition.

You can add cells to the local nPartition or to any remote nPartitions in the same server complex.


Reboot for Reconfig Guidelines for Adding Cells

In some situations, you must immediately perform a reboot for reconfig of a modified nPartition after addingcells to it.
• You must perform a reboot for reconfig of an active nPartition after you have added a cell to it (HP-UX:shutdown -R; Windows: shutdown /r; Linux: shutdown -r time; OpenVMS: @SYS$SYSTEM:SHUTDOWN
with an automatic system reboot). The reboot for reconfig enables the newly assigned cell to rendezvous and be actively used when the nPartition reboots.

• Perform a reboot for reconfig of an nPartition as soon as possible after you have added a cell to an active nPartition and have specified a “y” use-on-next-boot value for the new cell.

• You need not perform a reboot for reconfig of an nPartition in these situations:
— When you have added a cell to an inactive nPartition.
— When you have added a cell with a “n” use-on-next-boot value and you did not specify the -B option to the parmodify command.

 

Adding Cells to an nPartition (nPartition Commands)

From the command line, use the parmodify command to add cells to an nPartition. You also can use the parstatus command to list nPartition and complex details, such as available cells.

Step 1: Use the parstatus -A -C command to list all available cells (the unassigned cells) in the server complex.

 

Step 2: Choose one or more eligible cells from the list to add to the nPartition. Adding the cell(s) to the nPartition must create a configuration that meets the hardware requirements and performance guidelines.

 

Step 3: Modify the nPartition by issuing the parmodify -p# -a#... command to add the cell (-a#...where # is the cell number) to the specified nPartition (-p# where # is the nPartition number). The
-a... option differs slightly for the nPartition command releases.

To add multiple cells, you can specify the -a option multiple times in the same command.

parmodify Command:
-a Option Differences for nPartition Command Releases

The parmodify command’s -a... option specifies a cell number and attributes, which are used when adding the cell to an existing nPartition. For the Enhanced nPartition Commands, an
additional cell local memory attribute is optional. Both syntaxes are given in the following list.

 

• For the Original nPartition Commands, the parmodify command’s -a... option is as follows:
-a cell:[type]:[use]:[fail]
where:
cell The cell to be added to the nPartition. You can specify the cell in global (cell)format or in hardware location (cabinet/slot) format.


type The cell type: base is the only supported cell type and it is the default.


use The cell use-on-next-boot value: y or n. Use y (the default) if the cell is to be an active member of the nPartition, or use n if the cell is to remain an inactive member.


fail The cell failure usage: ri (reactivate with interleave) is the only supported failure usage policy and it is the default. For details, refer to the parmodify (1M) manpage.


• For the Enhanced nPartition Commands, the parmodify command’s -a... option is as follows:
-a cell:[type]:[use]:[fail][:clm]


where the cell, type, use, and fail attributes are the same as supported by the Original nPartition Commands.
The clm value specifies the amount of memory that will be configured as cell local memory for the cell.
You can specify the clm value in either of two forms: percentage or absolute amount of memory.

 

— Percentage cell-local memory (CLM).
The percent number can be any number in the range 0–100 with a suffix of %.
This number is rounded to 12.5%, 25%, 37.5%, 50%, 62.5%, 75%, 87.5% or 100%. If the cell contains less than 4 GBytes of memory, then the percentage is rounded to 25%, 50%, 75% or 100%. Percentages are rounded up or down to the nearest value, but are not rounded up to 100%.

— Absolute CLM specification. (The default.)
The absolute number is interpreted as an absolute number of gigabytes of memory and can optionally have a suffix of GB.


As needed, an absolute CLM specification is rounded up to the nearest 0.5 GBytes.
If the clm value is rounded, the command reports the final value used. For details, refer to the parmodify (1M) manpage.

 

parmodify Command:
-B Option for nPartition Booting
You can optionally specify the parmodify command’s -B option to require that the modified nPartition be rebooted.

 

• When you specify -B to modify an inactive nPartition, the changes to the inactive nPartition are completed immediately and the nPartition then boots and becomes active.

 

• When you specify -B to modify an active nPartition, you must perform a reboot for reconfig for the changes to be completed. After the reboot for reconfig occurs the nPartition boots and
becomes active (because the parmodify command -B option was specified). Refer to the parmodify (1M) manpage for details on all options.

 

Step 4: As needed, perform a reboot for reconfig on the modified nPartition (HP-UX: shutdown -R;Windows: shutdown /r; Linux: shutdown -r time; OpenVMS: @SYS$SYSTEM:SHUTDOWN with an
automatic system reboot).

 

If you are facing any issues, while performing the activity, my suggestion would be involving HP Representative.

 

Log a hardware case with HP, HP rep. will do the needful..

Does anybody have any more ideas with CSR_ERROR_MODE?
Any help would be useful. Thanks
