Yes, using vscsi.
In the 'planning' phase of moving to npiv, but my infrastructure is a tad behind the times so to speak and my switches don't support vscsi.
When I had the chance to use npiv, due to time constraints I wasn't able to switch a box over to it. One of those projects where they needed it three weeks ago, so I just did it the quick and dirty way that I knew would work, and work well.


So if you are seeing it logged in, did you run cfgmgr after all the zoning?
# 9  
Yes, I did the cfgmgr and even reboot the box, but no help. I guess that maybe my aix box is very old 5.3 TL 9.
Another possibility, it cannot support both physical and virtual at the same time, just assuming.

ok now I get what you are saying. How to fix this can be found here

I tried your link and what I can but not success

Code:
Enabled   hdisk1 fscsi2
Enabled   hdisk1 fscsi2
Enabled   hdisk1 fscsi0
Enabled   hdisk1 fscsi0

I feel 1 thing strange here is that the disk is detected twice by each physical fibre adapter. I think it should be like below:
Code:
Enabled   hdisk1 fscsi2
Enabled   hdisk1 fscsi0

I would not be so concerned about the duplicates - we had that a lot on our old boxes with no issues.
Anyways, as your have an OS already, can you see the virtual adapter itself on the VM ?

Hello,

I can see virtual adapter on both VIO and lpar. On VIO, I can see the port logged in and VIO recognize the name of lpar as well.

I decided to stop on this, as I figure out that, when I ask the storage admin to unzone the physical fiber adapter wwpn on VIO, but the LUN is still there, the multipath/link still "Enabled" instead of missing. I concluded there is something wrong at their end Smilie
