Our's is an IBM shop, We have all our AIX servers on Power 7 and built on NPIV. We LPM our servers a lot depending on the business requirement. When we have set up LPM, IBM told that the process is non-intrusive and seamless.
The question is : Couple days back I have LPM'd a server from a Frame A to Frame B, It took almost 10 minutes.
Yesterday when I moved the same server from Frame A to Frame B, During the same time Database team was applying Oracle PSU patches on the same, It took almost 30 minutes for the LPM to complete....
This is not the first time, I have noticed this behavior, So why is there a delay, Did LPM lock somethings .. Can someone please give me an insight....????
