Pinned topic rhel5u3: vio-client-lpar: error when trying to add cpu/memory with dlpar

‏2009-05-30T18:05:00Z |
Hi!

we have installed some rhel5U3-vio-client lpars on an E8A(p550). quite fine, BUT when we want to make dlpar operations (add cpu or memory) on these lpars , we get an error from HMC
HMC: HMCERRV3DLPAR020 AIX.DLPAR aix-dlpar operation on a cpu failed without throwing exception:
aix-command : drmgr -c cpu -a -q 25 -p ent_capacity -w 5 -d 1
aix-output: /usr/sbin/drmgr

We have installed following rpms on the clients
csm.client-1.7.1.0-22.ppc.rpm
csm.core-1.7.1.0-22.ppc.rpm
devices.chrp.base.ServiceRM-2.2.0.1-09083.ppc.rpm
DynamicRM-1.3.4-0.ppc64.rpm
rsct.core-2.5.3.0-09086.ppc.rpm
rsct.core.utils-2.5.3.0-09086.ppc.rpm
servicelog-0.2.9-0.ppc64.rpm
src-1.3.0.4-09083.ppc.rpm

All services are running (lssrc -a), and on the hmc we see with $lspartition -dlpar that the client-lpar is "registered"

##
Is there a missing fileset (on HMC we see that it ist a linux-ppc-lpar, so why does HMC complain about aix-commands?)
OR
Is adding cpu or memory not supported with rhel5u3?

thanks in advance for any help
best regards walter

    Hi to all:
    The solution is to exactly install the rpms in the order IBM describes in
    http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/set2/sas/f/lopdiags/redhat/hmcmanaged/rhel5.html

    then there is no problem any more with dlpar-operations: cpu,mem, virt adapters and so on
    best regards
    walter
