'hpvmnet' output slightly different on a HP VM Host Server.

Hello HPUX Gurus:

 

We have several HP VM Servers in our environment. When I run "hpvmnet" command the output has always been as shown below for HP VM Servers #1 and #2. (Only the active iVMs are displayed in the output).

 

However, on one of the HP VM Server (Marked as Server #3 below), I get an additional line in the output called "Available" . I have marked it in red. Should I be concerned about this one? Why is this output different? Any input from your end would be very much appreciated.

 

 

HP VM Server # 1 (Output as expected)
# hpvmnet -S vswitch1

Re: 'hpvmnet' output slightly different on a HP VM Host Server.

There is nothing wrong with that output. All it tells you is that port number 2 on vswitch0 is configured with VLAN id 305 but there is no guest currently using that port.

 

Either you removed the guest that was using that port/vlan or you configured the vlan id n that port with somehting like:

# hpvmnet -S vswitch0 -u portid:2:vlanid:305

 

If you do not want that anymore, just remove the vlan tag to port assignment:

# hpvmnet -S vswitch0 -u portid:2:vlanid:none

Stan:

 

Thanks for taking the time and confirming. I went ahead and removed the unwanted association with the syntax you had mentioned - it worked like a charm.

 

Thanks again.
