[Solved] CD-ROM issue with PowerVM IVM VIOS

I am facing problems in moving CD-ROM from one lpar to another.

CDROM can be seen on the POWERVM (IVM) server , but through the web-access if I move it ( assign it ) to LPAR it will be assigned. I run cfgmgr , and the cdrom does not show up in the LPAR. I firmly believe this is the reason why I was unable to boot from CDROM in this thread VIOS LPAR Error 0518 ;

Let us try to troubleshoot the problem.


Code:
POWERVM IVM

Someone mentioned that I might need to shutdown the vios server with shutdown -F but since I don't have HMC , i will need to physically be next to the server to start it no other way. shutdown -Fr did not work with CD assignment. see here : To see vhost on VIOS after creating an HMC profile

I have read ROOTVG - AIX & POWER Portal

but it didn't work.

Happy new year

Solution | Resolved LPAR VIOS IVM POWERVM AIX CD-ROM

When I restarted the LPAR after assigning it, from SMS menu I was able to detect it.


Apparently as Michael Felt said, the issue is with the AIX 5.3 ML 00 !!

With AIX 6.1 , I can assign the CD - ROM through web and it will be detected after executing cfgmgr !
