hp virtual machine warning

Hi

We have installed the trial version of integrity virtual machine and everything is working fine. We have 3 virtual servers on the physical host. But the hpvmstatus command is returing this warning message.

Virtual Machine Name VM # OS Type State #VCPUs #Devs #Nets Memory Runsysid
==================== ===== ======= ========= ====== ===== ===== ======= ========
xiqa 3 HPUX On (OS) 4 6 1 2 GB 0
hpvmstatus: WARNING (host1): The configuration file needs to be updated.
eccqa 1 HPUX On (OS) 4 16 1 12 GB 0
hpvmstatus: WARNING (host2): The configuration file needs to be updated.
biqa 4 HPUX On (OS) 4 10 1 12 GB 0
hpvmstatus: WARNING (host3): The configuration file needs to be updated.



Is there any configuration chnages that I have to do ?

Appreciating your help and points assured.

Re: hp virtual machine warning

Hi kggj,

I have never seen this message before but I also have never used an HPVM evaluation version ...

"Is there any configuration chnages that I have to do ?" Your question is a little bit vague. It's dependent on what you did exactly before ;-)

Anyway, I would tend to answer "NO". If you treat the VMs with commands hpvmcreate, hpvmodify, ... and not straight by editing configuration files you should not have any trouble, any more thing to do.

May be you could have to issue somes "hpvmdevmgmt ..." commands, for example to have a CDROM shareable, but it's not something mandatory.

Well, since the message speaks of "configuration file" let's have a look at /var/opt/hpvm/guests/*/ (symbolic links to /var/opt/hpvm/uuids/*/). You should find for each VM the following files :

/var/opt/hpvm/guests/leiho/:
total 400
-rw-r----- 1 root hpvmsys 3 Dec 21 16:20 .vmid
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root hpvmsys 65744 Dec 21 17:49 FPL
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root hpvmsys 16592 Dec 21 17:49 SEL
drwxrws--- 2 root hpvmsys 96 Dec 26 11:05 console
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root hpvmsys 50 Dec 21 17:41 guest_status
-rw-r--r-- 1 root hpvmsys 573 Dec 21 17:49 log
-rw-r----- 1 root hpvmsys 65603 Dec 21 17:49 nvram
-rw-r----- 1 root hpvmsys 1533 Dec 21 17:41 vmm_config.current

If the VM is started you will find a special file :

crwx------ 1 root hpvmsys 118 0x000002 Dec 21 17:31 vm_dev

And if you have done some hpvmodify you can also find following files :

-rw-r----- 1 root hpvmsys 1450 Dec 26 11:05 vmm_config.next
-rw-r----- 1 root hpvmsys 1456 Dec 20 16:59 vmm_config.prev

If you take a look at a VM's vmm_config.current file do you notice any difference with the result of an hpvmstatus -P ?

Do you have the same warning message with command "hpvmdevmgmt -l all" ?

That's all for the moment.

Ho no, something else : i am surprised by the message itself "hpvmstatus: WARNING (host1): ..." then same message with host2, then host3. Any idea about what are host1, host2 and host3 ?

Regards

Eric

Re: hp virtual machine warning

Hi

The # hpdevmgmt -l all command does not give any warnings.

Thanks

Re: hp virtual machine warning

Ok, I thought that guests host's name were the same as virtual machine's name (xiqa, eccqa and biqa)

Have you installed the guest depot ? You can find it on the host under :

/opt/hpvm/guest-images/hpux/11iv2/hpvm_guest_depot.11iv2.sd

(or /opt/hpvm/guest-images/hpux/11iv3/hpvm_guest_depot.11iv3.sd if your guest is HP-UX 11iv3)

What about the files I told you to check under /var/opt/hpvm/guests/ ? Is everything OK ?
