Add virtual NIC to AIX LPAR while running
« on: June 23, 2014, 05:58:08 PM »
hi guys

just to be sure I want to add a new Virtual Ethernet to a LPAR AIX 7 and the Add option is disabled (this in Manage Virtual Server)
so just to double check here is it possible to add a Virtual Ethernet Adapter to a LPAR AIX while running?
I see I am able to add a Virtual Ethernet to LPAR IBM i?
is something I am doing wrong?

thanks a  lot

Karlochacon,

I'm fairly certain you have to deactivate the profile to make the change then reactivate and it will bring the machine up and find the new devices. If you cannot afford a reboot then I have also sent this to our PowerVM tech for final analysis.

Thanks!
