IBM Power Pseries Open Firmware boot / VIOS POWERVM VET CODE

Hello,

I installed PowerVM IVM Virtual I/O on P-550 but later found out that the machine isn't activated for CoD VET code for virtualization.

So when booted , it goes into OPEN Firmware

I/O Hosting requires a hosting partition boot not permitted exit called
> ok


Panel shows > IO Hosting

> ok
> boot disk
....error messages
> boot cd
....error messages

On the control panel i cannot go to 08 -- Fast shutdown of machine
I can only change 1,2,4,11,20

the question: How can I reboot the machine without pulling the power cords ?



This is how CoD on ASMI looks like to enable PowerVM IVM Virtual I/O VIOS for the machine

does web based asmi work?

https://serviceprocessor_ipaddress

login with userid admin, i think the default password is abc123, or admin.

From the web interface you can reboot system, or shutdown, etc.

[Solved] IBM Power Pseries Open Firmware boot / VIOS POWERVM VET CODE

Thank you Michael. You are right, it never crossed my mind to go through ASMI and restart.

Michael can check this post http://www.unix.com/aix/205807-solve...g-pseries.html

re: your other story - sounds as if you have been very busy!

I would only add that if you are not seeing console AFTER doing the ASMI reset you might have a motherboard issue.

Happy New Year!
