[Bug 1486180] Comment bridged from LTC Bugzilla


------- Comment From gpiccoli@xxxxxxxxxx 2015-12-07 21:56 EDT-------
Quick update/information: I wasn't able to perform DLPAR in the way described on bug. Normally I use command-line tool called "drmgr", and even with this tool, I couldn't perform DLPAR in the usual way.

I was able to add the adapter in LPAR via HMC, with partition powered
off. Then, once it boots, I was able to see adapter there, and in this
scenario I could perform DLPAR using the "drmgr" tool without issues,
i.e., bug wasn't reproduced in this case.

The problem is that, if the adapter is not present as "required" in LPAR
configuration, i.e, if the adapter is not present on partition boot
time, the DLPAR facility does not work for me. I got messages like

-"Dynamic reconfiguration is not supported for connector type slots on this system" ;
-"Validating PHB DLPAR capability...yes.
There are no DR capable slots on this system. Could not find drc index for 32, unable to add thePHB."

in partition console (when using "drmgr" command) or the message

"RMC network connection to the source partition is not present"

in HMC, when trying DLPAR  via web interface.

Sachin, do you know what's going on? Can you help me perform the correct
DLPAR operation to reproduce the bug?

BTW, Murilo (my co-worker) suggested that the machine's firmware level
is too outdated - should we upgrade it?
