I follow the logic with this, I have 2 LPAR's that are reporting back 'Unknown' for AIX version. and in attempting to DLpar something, I get the dreaded RMC connection is not available. But your logic and examples are geared to AIX 7.x :) I am dealing with AIX 5.3 TL12

What commands would I have to follow for that version of AIX?

Hi All, I have a similar issue working with LPAR on PS701 blades. We have a setup with network configured on switch port. And later we planned to move it to trunk port to enhance the networking capabilities. Once this is changed, the LPAR lost connection with the VIOS (we are using IVM) on the management network. The service network using HEA is all in good shape after VLAN tagging. It is only the problem with other PCI-X adapters trying to use them for management network.

I tried all above steps, but to no avail. The rmc state still show inactive for the lpar. Can some brilliant minds throw some smart ideas to fix this.
$ lssyscfg -r lpar -F name,rmc_state

I just encountered a similar problem for cloning a primary node in PowerHA and making it a standby node. Though the environment as far as PowerHA was concerned worked, but errpt every 60 seconds was recording the errors I listed below. I went through the procedures above, though I stopped PowerHA on the standby node before starting. After performing the steps I got cthags was no longer found. I rebooted and all worked but I wasn't real happy with that.

So I recreated my environment again. The only step difference this time was when stopping PowerHA on the stby node I also stopped CAA services,
went through steps, then restarted and told it to start CAA services again. Now this exact clmgr syntax only works with PowerHA 7.1.3 SP1 or above. Earlier versions of CAA/HA have different options/commands to stop/start CAA individually. This seems to have worked for me, hopefully it works for others.
clmgr stop node dtcu0_stby WHEN=now MANAGE=offline STOP_CAA=yes
stopsrc -g rsct_rm; stopsrc -g rsct
/usr/bin/odmdelete -o CuAt -q 'attribute=node_uuid'
/usr/sbin/rsct/bin/mknodeid -f (when I ran this step I go no output, I think it just pulls in the existing one from repos disk for node but not sure)
lsattr -El cluster0
clmgr start node web WHEN=now MANAGE=auto START_CAA=yes
