Pinned topic BUG - Cannot turn off AME after the trial period, cannot start LPAR

‏2010-04-28T05:40:31Z |
Problem:

AME entitlement has expired. Cannot activate an LPAR profile which has AME configured. Cannot turn off AME for the profile in the HMC GUI.

Workaround:
On the HMC command line, as hscroot

Assuming that

$MACHINE is the name of the managed system (either the name or MTMS eg: 8233-E8B*100271P)
$LPAR is the name of the LPAR
$PROFILE is the name of the profile

run:


lssyscfg -r prof -m *$MACHINE* --filter lpar_names=
"$LPAR,profile_names=$PROFILE" -F mem_expansion


this tells you the current ratio

then run


chsyscfg -r prof -m $MACHINE -i 
"name=$PROFILE,lpar_name=$LPAR,mem_expansion=0.0"


and check by running


lssyscfg -r prof -m $MACHINE --filter lpar_names=
"$LPAR,profile_names=$PROFILE" -F mem_expansion


again. You should see the value 0.0

The GUI should reflect the change by unchecking the "Active Memory Expansion" box under the "Memory" tab of the profile's properties, and the profile can now be activated.
EG:


hscroot@hmc11:~> hscroot@hmc11:~> MACHINE=8233-E8B*100272P hscroot@hmc11:~> LPAR=atlas1aix1 hscroot@hmc11:~> PROFILE=ame_1.6_1280M_2048M hscroot@hmc11:~> hscroot@hmc11:~> lssyscfg -r prof -m $MACHINE --filter lpar_names=
"$LPAR,profile_names=$PROFILE" -F mem_expansion 1.6 hscroot@hmc11:~> hscroot@hmc11:~> chsyscfg -r prof -m $MACHINE -i 
"name=$PROFILE,lpar_name=$LPAR,mem_expansion=0.0" hscroot@hmc11:~> hscroot@hmc11:~> lssyscfg -r prof -m $MACHINE --filter lpar_names=
"$LPAR,profile_names=$PROFILE" -F mem_expansion 0.0 hscroot@hmc11:~>


I hope that this is of use.

    It looks like the HMC update that just came out (V7R7.1.0 SP2) has the fix for this issue.
