LPAR RMC state for DLPAR


I have checked the state of rmc on the HMC as below:
HMC1:~> lssyscfg -r lpar -m Server-xxx -F lpar_id,state,rmc_state,rmc_ipaddr,os_version,dlpar_mem_capable,dlpar_proc_capable,dlpar_io_capable --filter "lpar_ids=4"

HMC1:~> lssyscfg -r lpar -m Server-xxx -F lpar_id,state,rmc_state,rmc_ipaddr,os_version,dlpar_mem_capable,dlpar_proc_capable,dlpar_io_capable --filter "lpar_ids=3"
3,Running,inactive,10.176.x.x,AIX 5.3 5300-12-05-1140,0,0,0

But I check on my AIX lpar, the rmc is still active
[abc] / > lssrc -s ctrmc
Subsystem         Group            PID          Status
 ctrmc            rsct             385218       active

I am still finding the way to check on VIOS rmc state.

so, why the HMC cannot detect the rmc state.

What I can do to get HMC see the state of lpar rmc state. Please advise.

most likely cause is that port 657 is not open.

Hello zmaus,

I found the reason, it's because I took out the ethernet adapter, so the partitions don't have the IP.
Naturally, I think HMC can connect to it LPARs by its own method, but instead it uses IP to connect.

After I assign the adapter again, the rmc state is active.
