System p52A (9131-52A): SF240-418 microcode level, HMC v7r220.127.116.11
Virtual I/O Server v18.104.22.168 FP26 with four freshly created client LPARs, as well as the corresponding virtual ethernet and virtual SCSI adapters. Virtual SCSI disks are shared from a separate VG within the VIOS server containing logical volumes.
When the partitions are activated through SMS, only partitions 1 and 4 can recognize the virtual SCSI disk when performing a "List all devices" operation within SMS. Partitions 2 and 3 do not recognize the virtual disks.
Client and server virtual SCSI ports are correctly configured, while lsmap -all reports correct information when checked from the VIOS.
Has anyone encountered similar problems? What could possible cause this?
