I'm looking for a supported configuration to allow manual relocation resp. failvover of a wpar to another LPAR.
This configuration should work without Power HA and the WPAR Manager.
I intend the following approach:
1. Create a rootvg WPAR on a disk that is shared between two LPARs (SAN)
root@lpar1: / >mkwpar -i -l -r -t -n wpar1-D devname=hdisk26 rootvg=yes -N address=10.100.10.100 interface=en0 netmask=255.255.255.0 -o /tmp/wpar1.conf
2. Copy the WPAR specification file to the target LPAR
root@lpar1: / >scp -p /tmp/wpar1.conf root@lpar2:/tmp
3. On lpar2 create the WPAR using the specification file
root@lpar2: / > mkwpar -p -f /tmp/wpar1.conf
The disk where the WPAR lives, is protected against concurrent access using SCSI3 persistent reservation.
Is this a suitable and supported solution ?
Thanks for usefull suggestion.
