Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Hello RecoveryOne,

Code:
bash-4.4# lscfg -vpl cd0
  cd0              U78CB.001.WZS0GY4-P2-D15  SATA DVD-RAM Drive

        Manufacturer................IBM.
        Machine Type and Model......RMBO0140532
        ROS Level and ID............RA64
        Device Specific.(Z0)........058002028F000030
        Part Number.................00RW610
        EC Level....................N99020
        FRU Number..................00RW611
        Hardware Location Code......U78CB.001.WZS0GY4-P2-D15


  PLATFORM SPECIFIC

  Name:  disk
    Node:  disk
    Device Type:  block
bash-4.4# lsdev -Cl cd0 -F parent
sata0
bash-4.4# lscfg -vpl sata0
  sata0            U78CB.001.WZS0GY4-P1-C14-T1  Controller SATA Protocol

  PLATFORM SPECIFIC

  Name:  sata
    Node:  sata
    Device Type:  sata_ioa

We can see the physical location of parent device sata0 is U78CB.001.WZS0GY4-P1-C14-T1. Check again in the HMC, it shows that the device is Raid controller. You can see in screenshot attached.

It is normal the sata device for cd is raid controller Smilie

This is why bakunin was saying VIO's make this easier. You could virtualize the optical drive and dynamically add it to any lpar. The above example I gave was from a box with no VIO. 100% of resources of the frame given to the lpar.
Yes I know. I just take over the system from previous vendor. I don't know why they don't install the VIOS.

Sorry, was out for a while traveling.

There's pro's and cons of VIO's but not the time and place.


Ok so lets do a smitty cdrfs


First, lets see if something was setup in the past. I doubt it, but let us check. Arrow down to Change / Show Characteristics of a CDROM File System
You will likely be greeted to this message: 1800-051 There are no items of this type.


If that's the case, exit that prompt, and go to Add a CDROM File System. The first option for device can be auto populated via the F4=List option. You should see cd0 there.
Fill out device name and mount point (you created the /cd directory right, if so use that for the mount point). I'd leave automount set to no.


From there, go ahead and try to mount your device. Should be good to go.

This is actually what i already mentioned above (see #4) with smitty storage, which is the upper-level menu fastpath. As it seems Phat didn't give that even a try.

My (unfounded) suspicion is that they tried to do it the Linux way (see the mount command given above) and now the remnants of their various configuration attempts lurk there to bite them. The ODM first needs to be cleaned from all these leftovers and then the (correct) setup should work.

Hi RecoveryOne,

Have tried that Change / Show Characteristics of a CDROM File System and found the screenshot attached.

Tried with Add a CDROM File System got the same issue as suggested by Bakunin.
