4 Virtual Partitions - RP8400

Hi,

We have a RP8400 with the following configuration.

- 2*Core IO + 2*Base IO cells configured as a single hard partition.
- 4 * 36 GB HDDs (Internal)
- HP-UX 11.11

I need to create 4 virtual partitions. But from the ioscan output it looks like the internal HDDs are connected to only 2 IO cards. So as per my understanding I can create only 2 vPars using the internal disks (attaching ioscan and rad outputs). Kindly suggest me how do I configure 4 vPars without having to connect any external HDDs.

Thanks,
Karthik S S

I have already gone through that document but it does not answer my question.

Karthik,

I've recently been studying in preparation for creating my first two VPAR system. From what I've read, you're correct - you can't create 4 VPARs with your configuration. You need to have 4 separate I/O cards.

Re: 4 Virtual Partitions - RP8400

IO cards (and BUSes) can not be shared between vPars.

To determine if a device is useable look for CLASS=ba and DRIVER=lba on the same line) in your ioscan. This defines the DIVIDING line (AN IO CARD/DEVICE).

IE:

Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
