IOCP problem in aix

Hi All,

I have a requirment wherein I have to change the state of IOCP in AIX from defined to Available. The problem is when i do smitty iocp I am unable to change the state as the error says that it cannot be edited. Can anyone let me know any other way to to change the state other than smit.

Thanks

The usual way is

- smitty iocp

-- Configure Defined I/O Completion Ports

- smitty chgiocp

-- STATE to be configured at system restart: available
--- Choose this option using the TAB key or <F4>

This should do it (given the fileset "bos.iocp.rte" is installed).

If this doesn't work for you: What is the exact error message you get?

Hi,

The above command chgiocp is not working. It still doesn't allow me to edit the setting.

From STATE to be configured at system restart: available do you mean to say i should change it after te system restart?

Thanks

"STATE to be configured at system restart:" is the smit menu item whose value you'll have to change to "available".

Yes, the field cannot be edited, that's why I told you to use either the TAB key to switch from value to value or to use the <F4> key to get a list of possible values to choose between by means of the up/down arrow keys.

Perhaps it's already "Available"? What do you get with "lsdev -C | grep iocp" ?

Using "smit(ty)" is the way to go for not so experienced AIX admins (despite of the fact that the author still seems to have some difficulties to understand how it works).
The described method is well documented and without alternative when it comes to make IOCP available to  AIX using "smit(ty)".
