Configure NPIV FSM-p260-VIO
« on: May 30, 2014, 01:35:39 PM »
We have a VIO running on a p260, latest VIO version. We have an IBMi LPAR running.
Now we want to install 1 more AIX LPAR and it will be installed using a restore from tape.
So we were asked to use NPIV to generate virtual WWNS and map these to the WWNs from tape in order to boot from them and install AIX.
Now a coworker told me I need to create the virtual adapters first for VIO and after that associate them to the LPAR.
So created two Virtual Fabric Adapters (VIO ->Manage Profile)
and did the same for this LPAR -> 2 Virtual Fabric Adapters. LPAR -> Manage Profile
I did that but I don't see the Virtual Adapters in VIO
lsdev -dev vfchost*
what I see is this in the Manage Profile for the Virtua Fabric Adapters (by the way which on the pair I should see in my San Switch?)
WWPNs, Virtual adapter 1
WWPNs - virtual adapter 2
so what do I have to do? shutdown VIO and LPAR? or is it ok I don't see anything with this command lsdev -dev vfchost* (I even run cfgmgr)
An idea how to fix this?
thanks a lot guys
