Any information on this would be appreciated. Also, would it be better to think we would want to create a small LPAR (CPU/Memory) wise to be the netdump server. Also, Linux is on IBM LPARS .Thanks!

    Have you read:

    As far as creating a LPAR, what are you running it on?  I am assuming that since you used the term LPAR, its one if IBM's LPAR'able systems (zSeries, iSeries, or pSeries).

    Thanks for the information. It is running on a Power 570. Do I have to request a device for each Linux LPAR (4) to configure Netdump?

    Not really an expert in this area, but I saw the word "LPAR" and knew that most people in forums you placed the question in would most likely have no idea what it means.  I work on IBM zSeries servers and z/OS so I know what an LPAR is.

    You may want to add this to the AIX forum and possibly the AS/400. Although it is not directly related to either, they peopl there have a better chance of knowing what an LPAR is and can help with the LPAR questions.

    Umm, thanks?

    You don't have to award the points, I really have done nothing to deserve them.  You can put a question in community support and ask to have this question re-opened and added to AIX and AS/400 forums.
