In our Implementation project we have around 450 lpars in around 12 managed systems configured with 3 HMCs. We are not alllowed to use ssh keygen to enable passwdless authentication for security reason. We need to get paging space and memory allocated to all lpars for every week. Currently we are manually logging to all lpars and getting the memory and paging space information took around 30 hours. We need answer to following question.
Do we able to get paging space through HMC ? as per my understanding it is not possible .if yes do we able to get any script to run on HMC and get paging space and memory size .
The output should show HMC IP, Managed system,lpar name and paging size and memory size.
2. Suppose if we could not use HMC . We have NIM server through which we can login to lpar and get paging space and memory info.
We need a script which will get lparname and passwd from a file and login to lpar then get paging space and memory size AND IFCONFIG OUTPUT of lpar and put it to output file.
Output file should have lpar name and paging space and memory size. (if the output file shows frame name , lparname and IP configured(ifconfig output) paging space and memory it will be helpfull) It will give relief from 40 hours of manual painfull work.
ANY HELP PLEASE.
Manual passwd entry method also oK because we are using same passwd for most of the lpars
