Operating Systems AIX Need to replace a broken PV in a VIO VG used for client LPARs (and it won't release the old one) Post 303044000 by maraixadm on Wednesday 12th of February 2020 10:09:09 AM

that worked, thank you (unmap, and remove partitions, via HMC virt storage mgmt)

so an instance of seeing the forest and missing the tree you were looking for - I was trying to think along with AIX and figure out what entity was holding the LVs open. Ba-Doh, the VIO itself. Amazing how these episodes of having all the dots but not correcting the relevant ones happen. Thanks for the prod.

Rebooting redundant VIOs and mirroring of PVs they serve to client LPARs

need to confirm: we have a system with two VIOs each serving a partition on a local disk to a client LPAR. That client LPAR has them both in a VG which is mirrored (exact). So each disk has a copy of the client LV that the client VG supports. This is the setup that was bequeathed to us by the... (3 Replies)

GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON.3(October 1, 1997)									     GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON.3(October 1, 1997)

NAME
GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON - copy a physical connector from an instance in the current figure SYNOPSYS
#include <genlib.h> void GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON(index, conname, insname, newname) long index; char *insname; char *conname; char *newname; ORIGIN
This software belongs to the ALLIANCE CAD SYSTEM developed by the ASIM team at LIP6 laboratory of Universite Pierre et Marie CURIE, in Paris, France. Web : http://asim.lip6.fr/recherche/alliance/ E-mail : alliance-users@asim.lip6.fr PARAMETERS
index Connector index in the instance conname Name of the connector in the instance model insname Name of the instance the connector belongs to newname Name to be given to the connector in the current figure DESCRIPTION
COPY_UP_CON copies a instance connector into the current layout figure, and gives to the new connector the name newname. The instance con- nector is identified by its name, conname, and index, index. Two behaviour are expected, depending on the instance connector location regarding the abutment box of the current figure. Connector on the abutment box The figure connector is place right over the instance connector. The single connector is duplicated. Connector inside the abutment box The instance connector face is computed in the figure, and then, the connector is duplicated on the given face, at the right coordinates for this face. Then a wire is drawn between the instance connector and the figure connector in the connector layer. If newname is NULL, then not connector is copied up, on the segment is drawn to the side of the abutment box. ERRORS
"GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON impossible : missing GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG" No figure has been yet specified by a call to DEF_PHFIG. So it isn't possible to place a connector inside it. you must call DEF_PHFIG before any other layout action. "*** genlib error *** GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON impossible : connector conname index index of instance insname, current figure doesn't exist" The given connector does not exist in the current figure. EXAMPLE
#include <genlib.h> main() { /* Create a figure to work on */ GENLIB_DEF_PHFIG("cell"); . . GENLIB_PLACE_LEFT("gaer0_f", "insN", SYMXY); . . GENLIB_DEF_AB(0L, 0L, 0L, 0L); /* Put a connector */ GENLIB_COPY_UP_CON("i0", 1, "insN", "inz0"); /* Save that on disk */ GENLIB_SAVE_PHFIG(); } SEE ALSO
