ioinit can't change lan instance number

Hi,

I read other messages, but i don't view the solution for this case. When i try to change the instance number of a lan, i have the error

# ioinit -f infile -r
ioinit: Instance number 0 already exists for class lan.
Line 1. 0/0/1/0 lan 0

But there isn't a lan 0



Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type Description
====================================================================
lan 4 0/0/1/0 igssn CLAIMED INTERFACE HP IGSSN PCI 1000Base-T Adapter
lan 1 0/0/2/0 igssn CLAIMED INTERFACE HP IGSSN PCI 1000Base-T Adapter
lan 2 0/0/4/0 igssn CLAIMED INTERFACE HP IGSSN PCI 1000Base-T Adapter
lan 3 0/0/5/0 igssn CLAIMED INTERFACE HP IGSSN PCI 1000Base-T Adapter

where is the problem that will not let me change the instance number?

I have a IVM guest with hpux 11.23

What is the output of lanscan?
Every problem has at least one solution. Only some solutions are harder to find.

It would be interesting to see:

hpvmstatus -P -d

for this guest (obviously replacing with the name of the guest

Re: ioinit can't change lan instance number

Bonjour Jimmy,

Have you renamed both your /etc/ioconfig and /stand/ioconfig before rebooting to issue command "ioinit -f infile -r" ?

May be you should post the "infile"
