Re: nPAR configuration in rx8640 server

Without a SEU you need to form an nPar with cell0, another with cell1. Add the remaining cell however you like.

All the details:

http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-1247B_ed2/index.html

Consider to use the SMH based parmgr!

Hope this helps!

Re: nPAR configuration in rx8640 server

Karki,

rx8640 having 4 cell board. So you can create 2 npar each having 2 cell board.

- Check parstatus to find howmany cell board you have on your rx8640.
- if you have 4 cell board: Use parmodify to delete 2 cell from npar 0 (default npar with HP default OS).
- do a reconfiguration reboot. # shutdown -R -y 0

- Once booted create npar1 , with the parcreate command , use the cell 1 and 2.

- Each npar should have at lease one core cell.

So you will have, 2 npar:
npar0 ( cell0 , & cell1 )
npar1 ( cell2 , & cell3 )


Cheers,
Raj.

... and how about I/O without a SEU?

Hope this helps!

Re: nPAR configuration in rx8640 server

Hi Karki,

For creating first Npar,

Just go to console,

MP> CM
CM> CP

check if there any partition info is showing

Then just run

CM>cc

This command allows you to change the complex profile.



WARNING: You must either shut down the OSs for reconfiguration or

execute the RR (reset for reconfiguration) command for all

partitions before executing this command.



G - Build genesis complex profile

L - Restore last complex profile

Select profile to build or restore:

Just give G

Building a genesis complex profile will create a complex profile

consisting of one partition with a single cell.



Choose the cell to use.



give cell number. It will create your genesis partition.. enjoy...

:)

Sooraj
