I'm trying to do a Dlpar to increase / decrease memory on a LINUX LPAR ( P5) running RHEL 5.3 but the operation fails with the below error
DLPAR ADD Memory resources failed:
/usr/sbin/drmgr not installed
I have all the RAS rpm's installed as mentioned in the link below
Can anyone suggest how it can be achieved and any help documents ?

Re: DLPAR on RHEL 5.32011-04-05T19:01:48Z in response to SystemAdminThat seems a bit odd, the drmgr command should have been installed as part of the RHEL ppc64-utils package. I would confirm that the /usr/sbin/drmgr command does not exist on your system. Also, could you provide additional information on how you are attempting to add/remove memory?
If the drmgr command really is not there you can try to re-install the ppc64-utils package from the RHEL media or grab the latest version of the powerpc-utils package that has the latest drmgr command in it.

In the link I see the pps utility for sles -10 only , will this suit for RHEL 5.3 ppc
In my ppc RHEL Installation media i see the rpm (ppc64-utils-0.11-10.el5) which is already there in my system.
root@xxxxx~# rpm -qa | grep ppc
I will try installing it again
Re: DLPAR on RHEL 5.32011-04-18T15:09:42Z in response to SystemAdminI Updated the ppc64-utils package from the internal IBM RHN and it worked fine
I tried Increase and decrease of Processsors - Worked fine
Increase of Memory worked fine
Decrease of memory didn't work as it stated that there is no free memory to deallocate.. I think this is because all the memory or locked by the OS..
Thanks for the Help :)
