AIX Power HMC Question

I am trying to install on a Power machine

I  have an existing LPAR, and I create a new LPAR

The original LPAR is running, so I try to Stop it, but Hitting Operations->Shut DOwn

It never shuts down and in the reference code, it gives me the following code

 CA00E175

Open in new window


I looked that up, and the info I get from google is that the code mentions:

BootP request

Open in new window


Any idea what is going on, and how I can resolve this ?

Thanks

BTW, the failing item is FWHOST, I can not gather from the doc exactly what FWHOST actually means, but apparently occurs when booting from an ethernet card.  Can someone give me more info

Hi,

first, why would you shutdown an LPAR just to create a new one?

That's the essence of virtualization - running several virtual partitions in parallel on a single hardware platform!

Or is it a full system LPAR?

Anyway, it seems that you didn't only shutdown the LPAR but tried to restart it. The LPAR now sits and waits for a bootp response from NIM, probably due to an invalid bootlist, or for what reasons ever.

Shut down the LPAR again, this time with Operations -> Shutdown -> Immediate -> Yes

Don't worry, you can't do any harm to the LPAR since there is no OS running anymore.

But again: Why shut down this LPAR?

FWHOST is a symbolic "Field Replacable Unit" responsible for Network connections during the boot phase.

Originally, FRUs have actually been hardware parts replacable "in the field" by IBM customer engineers (CEs), and each FRU hat its service MAP (Maintenance Application Procedure).

IBM extended this concept of service MAPs to non-hardware items. Since there is nothing to "replace" in such a case IBM invented the prefix "symbolic".

A bit of history is always enjoyable, don't you think so?

The machine had a full LPAR on it already, and I was trying to add a new full LPAR, (no virtualization)

It appears that the original LPAR was trying start, and the problem that was reported was from the Original LPAR.  I finally got it to shut down.

Actually, yes, I appreciate the history
