nPars

Hi,

Can you please advise with nPar reformation? The status I have is following: 2 x rx8640, on each server are two nPars running, each nPar has 6CPUs, which means there are 12 CPUs per server.

I need to change configuration in following way:
On each server will remain two nPars, but one will have 4 CPUs and second 8 CPUs.

And my question is, whether this can be done online, if CPU needs to be physically replaced by technician, or I can do it online.

nPars on different systems are clustered.

#swlist | grep HPUX11i
HPUX11i-OE-Ent B.11.23.0403 HP-UX Enterprise Operating Environment Component
HPUX11i-OE-MC B.11.23.0409 HP-UX Mission Critical Operating Environment Component


Can you please give a short hint?

Re: nPars

I don't know how many cells are there, but assuming there are 2 cells with 3 cpu modules each, you need to move a module from one cell to another.

Hope this helps!

Re: nPars

This is a single cell, but there are 2 cells in each nPar.

Please post

# parstatus

# icapstatus

Hope this helps!
