vPars not boot with HP-UX 11.31

Hi!

I'm trying to create vpars on a partition of an HP Integrity RX8640 with HP-UX 11.31. I have already installed HP-UX 11.31 in two different disks and installed Virtual Partition A.05.02.

I created two vpars and changed the boot mode to vpars, when I reboot the system appears the following message:

Console is on virtual console - via PCDP
Database has changed as resource request could not be satisfied.
Look into the log file for more information.
Booting the partitions will alter the database on disk.
The original database will be saved as /stand/vpdb.orig
on the partition that owns the monitor boot disk.
If you want to retain the database, reboot the monitor
using the database file /stand/vpdb.orig.

I try to boot the vpars. One of them begin to start but it freeze the system and doesn't start. And when I try to boot the other appears the following error:

MON> vparload -p serint03
[MON] Booting serint03...
Error loading partition: Partition has zero base memory.

Somebody can help me?

Regards

Re: vPars not boot with HP-UX 11.31

There is something wrong with your config. Did you boot from the correct disk?
The second vPar has no memory assigned.
Check the config again.

Hope this helps!

Re: vPars not boot with HP-UX 11.31

You must have assigned all the memory of serint03 as Floating/Ejectable [in other words, memory that can be OnLine Deleted from the partition]. 11i v3 requires (as does a little firmware, etc.) at least some Base (Non-Ejectable) memory since very, very little of the kernel can be from Ejectable.

The requirements are:

Total Memory 1Gb to 8Gb, 50% of memory must be Base.
Total Memory 8Gb to 16Gb, at least 4Gb must be base.
Total Memory >16Gb, 25% of physical memory must be base.

Use vparmodify -m to change some of the memory assigned to serint03 to Base instead of Floating or just vparmodify -a to add Base memory to the partition.

Re: vPars not boot with HP-UX 11.31

Hi

The server has 8 dual core processors and 16 GB of memory. Each vpar has 1 processor an 1 GB of Memory.

Aitionally, in the first vpar I have the following error:

> System Memory = 127 MB
Could not allocate enough memory for kernel's data segment.

You don't have enough memory...

8 dual core and only 16GB of ram?

Here's one of mine.

Re: vPars not boot with HP-UX 11.31

While I agree 1Gb is too little memory for v3 (I think 1.5Gb is the minimum supported, but I'd have to dig around to check) -- 1Gb should at least be enough for vmunix... IF it could be used.

Either the monitor assigned memory ranges so haphazardly that you don't have enough contiguous memory (or there are bad pages), which I rather doubt from what you've said -- or that 1Gb is Floating as the prior message indicated.

Again, see my prior message. At 1Gb per vPar, you aren't supported -- but you definitely must be 100% Base.

Please post the results of vparstatus to confirm.

Re: vPars not boot with HP-UX 11.31

just to confirm, although the origional HP-UX 11iv3 docs said 1Gb was supported, it has since been updated to state that a minimum of 1.5Gb i srequired for 11iv3.

I suspect there is something incorrect in the memory specification you gave to tthe vpars

Hi Don,

Initially I have crated two vpars with 8 processor and 8GB of RAM each one, but I chagend it because I thought It was the problem. I send you the vparsatus output original.

Re: vPars not boot with HP-UX 11.31

Sorry, make that "vparstatus -v" (thought Base/Float was in there by default, but apparently you need to go verbose).
