rx8640 vpars reconfig patition split cell boards

rx8640
4 cell boards 2 patitions. Each partition has two cell boards.Partition 0 is disposable. Partition1 has Production Oracle on 1 vpar.

On part0 next weekend I will need to bring the whole partition down and split the cell boards(1 cell board for each partition) and create two new partitions.

I have set up and modified vpars, not npars/partitions.

Any advice, tips, or basic planning before I bury myself in this?

Thanks

Do you have an extension cabinet?
With a single cabinet you can only create 2 Npartitions, because you have only 2x IO.

Review "parstatus".

Hope this helps!

Re: rx8640 vpars reconfig patition split cell boards

well firstly, make sure you have a backup!
Secondly, record all the devices in the current npar and make sure that the I/O cards you want for the new single cell partition are all in the I/O card cage associated with that cell.
You must also make sure there is a core I/O card in the I./O chassis that you are going to use to creatte the new Npar.
