Action plan to make a Virtual Partition

Hi All,

I have one hp rp8420 (11.11) server with 2 CPUs & 12GB Memory.
I want to create a new Virtual partition.
what is the best action plan for that?
I read this document but it is not clear

thanks

Re: Action plan to make a Virtual Partition

You want to have 2 VPARs, each with 1 CPU and 6 Gb?

Re: Action plan to make a Virtual Partition

You need to provide more information:
What is currently running on the machine?
If something is running do you need to keep it?
What split of resources do you want?
Do you mean 2 processor boards? or 2 cores? or 1 board with 2 dual cores?

Re: Action plan to make a Virtual Partition

Hi Nejad,

VPARS is a virtual partitioning in which you can allocate CPU, LBA's.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

1. And what i can understand is that you are running HPUX on an NPAR.

2. You want to create a virtual partition with two CPU's and 12 GB Memory.

3. Take a NPAR ioscan output Plan that you need to find the required LBA's and that you want to assign to a VPAR.
Example vpar create
# vparcreate -p vpar1 -a io:1/0/0 -a io:1/0/1 -a io:1/0/1/1/0/1/1.6.0:boot -a cpu::2 -a mem::2048 -B auto

io:1/0/0 --LBA -It might be Disk, Lan Card,IO CARD

io:1/0/1 --LBA

io:1/0/1/1/0/1/1.6.0:boot --Path of the bootable disk
cpu::2 --Allocating two CPU's
mem::2048 --Memory 2 GB

Do reply incase you need anymore assistance

Thanks

Re: Action plan to make a Virtual Partition

Hi All,

yes i now running HP-UX 11.11 on an NPar and i want running HP-UX 11.11 on a new vpar, and i want to allocate the CPU and memory on 2 vpar.
