how to check VIO clients configured on VIO server

I have logged in VIO server. Now i want to check what and all VIO clients are configured from VIO server. Is there any command to check directly or any other way?

Hi,

you can check which LPAR has virtual SCSI disks assigned with

lsmap -all

Check the virtual I/O slots (i.e. virtual host adapters used to connect to virtual client adapters) with

lsdev -slots

See virtualization-capable SAN adapters and (if configured) their virtual ports with

lsnports

Display the network adapters with

lstcpip -adapters

where adapters flagged with "Virtual I/O Ethernet Adapter (l-lan)" are the ones used for virtual machine communication.

There are no "VIO clients" in a narrow sense, there are only virtual connectors served by VIO to be used by other virtual machines (LPARs = "Logical Partitions").

Issue

lsdev -virtual

to see the big picture, and issue

help

to see all VIO commands. Issue

man command

to learn more about single commands.

... and here is the Redbook:

PowerVM virtualization is a very wide subject, so I'd really suggest trying to acquire some basic knowledge before working with it in a production environment, e. g. by reading the above publication.
