Pinned topic LPAR Move - HSCLA246 - Power6 --> Power7

‏2012-09-12T06:36:57Z |
Hello,
we have a P6 System with VIOS Version: 2.2.0.12-FP24 SP-02 (vio0-p6 / vio1-p6)
P6 Firmware: 01EM350 IPL: 118

HMC Version: V7R7.4.0 + SP2 Build Level: 20120328.1

P740 with: VIOS Version: 2.2.1.4 (vio0-p740 / vio1-p740)
P740 Firmware: 01AL740 IPL: 88

All SAN disks are available on all VIOs. (But on the older VIOs we have native MPIO+SDDPCM the newer one do have native MPIO)
the older LPARs moved to new Strorage System (native MPIO)

If i create an empty LPAR on the Power6 System and start a Migration
I get the Error: HSCLA246

HSCLA246 The management console cannot communicate with partition vio0-p740. Either the network connection is not available or the partition does not have a level of software that is capable of supporting this operation. Verify the correct network and setup of the partition, and try the operation again.

Processor compatibility mode: Power6 of the LPAR
If i create a LPAR on the Power7 System (in Processor compatibility mode: Power6 too)
and try to move this LPAR to the Power6 System i get the same error

Do you have any ideas what might be the cause for this problem?

Thanks

    Hi Tux, there are a lot of causes to get this error, the more common are:

    • The VIOS servers have connectivity with HMC? you could test if the connection is available trying to add/remove hardware in a dynamic logical partition way (DLPAR operation).

    • The VIOS servers no have connectivity with the lpar (test with ping and ssh).

    • The OS of lpar not support lpm...(oslevel -s)

    Tell me what you check and we could continue troubleshooting

    Regards

      Hi,
      the Problem was that the 2nd vios was a 1:1 copy of first vios.
      After newinstall the 2nd vios all was running.
      There are some unique id´s. That was the Problem.
      So the HMC only communicate with the last started vios.
      Because the HMC belive that the VIOs is now on a other LPAR.
      Thanks
