Get the configuration data from existing LPAR

If you already have LPARs created you can use this command to get their configuration which can be reused as template:

lssyscfg -r prof -m SERVERNAME --filter "lpar_ids=X, profile_names=normal"

 

Create new LPAR using command line

Here is an example, for more information see '''man mksyscfg'''



mksyscfg -r lpar -m MACHINE -i name=LPARNAME, profile_name=normal, lpar_env=aixlinux, shared_proc_pool_util_auth=1,

min_mem=512, desired_mem=2048, max_mem=4096, proc_mode=shared, min_proc_units=0.2, desired_proc_units=0.5,

max_proc_units=2.0, min_procs=1, desired_procs=2, max_procs=2, sharing_mode=uncap, uncap_weight=128,

boot_mode=norm, conn_monitoring=1, shared_proc_pool_util_auth=1

 

Create more LPARs using configuration file

If you want to create more LPARS at once you can use a configuration file and provide it as input for mksyscfg.

Here is an example for 3 LPARs, each definition starting at new line:

 

name=LPAR1,profile_name=normal,lpar_env=aixlinux,all_resources=0,min_mem=1024,desired_mem=9216,max_mem=9216,proc_mode=shared,min_proc_units=0.3,desired_proc_units=1.0,max_proc_units=3.0,min_procs=1,desired_procs=3,max_procs=3,sharing_mode=uncap,uncap_weight=128,lpar_io_pool_ids=none,max_virtual_slots=10,"virtual_scsi_adapters=6/client/4/vio1a/11/1,7/client/9/vio2a/11/1","virtual_eth_adapters=4/0/3//0/1,5/0/4//0/1",boot_mode=norm,conn_monitoring=1,auto_start=0,power_ctrl_lpar_ids=none,work_group_id=none,shared_proc_pool_util_auth=1
name=LPAR2,profile_name=normal,lpar_env=aixlinux,all_resources=0,min_mem=1024,desired_mem=9216,max_mem=9216,proc_mode=shared,min_proc_units=0.3,desired_proc_units=1.0,max_proc_units=3.0,min_procs=1,desired_procs=3,max_procs=3,sharing_mode=uncap,uncap_weight=128,lpar_io_pool_ids=none,max_virtual_slots=10,"virtual_scsi_adapters=6/client/4/vio1a/12/1,7/client/9/vio2a/12/1","virtual_eth_adapters=4/0/3//0/1,5/0/4//0/1",boot_mode=norm,conn_monitoring=1,auto_start=0,power_ctrl_lpar_ids=none,work_group_id=none,shared_proc_pool_util_auth=1
name=LPAR3,profile_name=normal,lpar_env=aixlinux,all_resources=0,min_mem=1024,desired_mem=15360,max_mem=15360,proc_mode=shared,min_proc_units=0.4,desired_proc_units=1.0,max_proc_units=4.0,min_procs=1,desired_procs=4,max_procs=4,sharing_mode=uncap,uncap_weight=128,lpar_io_pool_ids=none,max_virtual_slots=10,"virtual_scsi_adapters=6/client/4/vio1a/13/1,7/client/9/vio2a/13/1","virtual_eth_adapters=4/0/3//0/1,5/0/4//0/1",boot_mode=norm,conn_monitoring=1,auto_start=0,power_ctrl_lpar_ids=none,work_group_id=none,shared_proc_pool_util_auth=1

Copy this file to HMC and run:

mksyscfg -r lpar -m SERVERNAME -f /tmp/profiles.txt
