DLPAR capable with IVM - checks to do

I cannot find the post with the comment that DLPAR capability was not working with IVM.

The two commands that need to be run are (as root, padmin does not know this command):
VIOS: lsrsrc IBM.MngNode
CLIENTS: lsrsrc IBM.MCP

Examples:
Code:
# lsrsrc IBM.MngNode

If this are being filled, then the RMC communication is working and DLPAR abilities should be working.

what could be the issue ?

Old 03-20-2013
I am guessing that the two versions of VIOS and AIX do not communicate with each other. They changed the names of the lsrsrc components.

I expect if you can get your AIX 5.3 updated to at least TL7 (best guess, there were a lot of changes to bring AIX 5.3 in line with AIX 6) it might work.

command I use to see what is known is:
Code:
for i in `lsrsrc | grep IBM`
do
lsrsrc $i
echo
done

One of these should have related information. But basically, my gut says the client does not know how to converse with VIOS.

Not recommended!!! Or - Install a 1.X VIOS. I think it is easier to install/update one partition and see if it works then than go backwards with VIOS.
