rx8640 with expansion cabinet

I have been ask why we do not have more vpars available on our rx8640 with expansion cabinet. Currently we have 2 npars w 2 vpars each. If we can create more npars/vpars can anyone help with the commands needed I ran some commands and here is the output.

It looks from the scan at the end of this output that we have used all the resources except the cpu's. This would mean no hard drives for vparcreate?

Re: rx8640 with expansion cabinet

The expansion cabinet will give you more I/O slots and more internal disks.

If you already use all available internal disks, you may consider to boot additional vPars from external disks (direct SCSI connected or fiber channel).

What result gives

vparstatus -A

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: rx8640 with expansion cabinet

And some more information please:
vparstatus -v
parstatus
olrad -q

(capture and attach to get a better formatting)

Hope this helps!

Solution

Re: rx8640 with expansion cabinet

You did the assignment of I/O on SBA level (not on LBA level), that means all available I/O is already assigned.

npar0
vpar0
(all) IO on 0.0

vpar1
IO on 3.0

npar1
vpar0
IO on 1.0

vpar1
IO on 2.0


IMHO not the best design. I would use each time one slot from IO chassis and one from another.


As long as all IO is assigned, you have no more resources to distribute.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
