If the hardware is supported, yes.

Consult the documentation!

Hope this helps!

Re: Vpar build

it depends on npar0 ,whether all the resources are available to support a new vpar on the npar not not.

you have to check your resources and documentation of server for support of vpar.

@Prasanth: Please go through below mentioned answers to your questions, so will it be a good thing to make just 1 vpar under it ???

Re: Vpar build

Hi Kavita,

for better suggetions, please let us know the server model.

Please go through below mentioned answers to your questions, so will it be a good thing to make just 1 vpar under it ???

Vpar is a product which designed for virtualization. It is used to have more than one HP_UX OS instanses running on an elctrically independent Hardware ( say NPar/standalone server)with out any OS dependency.

The conclusion is that, there is no point of keeping a single vPar in a production. For test purpose, yes, you can do anything.

do you have currently running any os in npar0? Yes ==> whcih OS? is that HP-UX ?

If yes, you can use the same OS disk for Vpar.


do you want to create more vpars in this npar ? No

I believe you want to create Vpar test system.

Re: Vpar build

Hi Sooraj,

Thanks a lot for your analysis but my point is that if we need to create a new vpar on a running npar then that npar has to be converted in vpar first so that we could have two vpars under that partition. Is not it ? Model is rx8640.

Thanks & regards,

Hi Kavita,

--> if we need to create a new vpar on a running npar then that npar has to be converted in vpar first so that we could have two vpars under that partition.

As per my understanding Yes, you are correct.

The OS running on the nPar can be "converted" to the first vPar.
