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. ...

Need to replace a broken PV in a VIO VG used for client LPARs (and it won't release the old one)
I have a broken PV in a VIO VG that's used to support client LPARs using LVs. On the client LPAR, I reduced all PVs from the relevant client VG and thus deleted it. I.e. there is no client LPAR...

Topas - CPU count inconsistent across LPARs
seeing weirdness across some 7.1.5.1 LPARs - they all have 2 vCPUs allocated shared. With prtconf they show 2 CPUs, 'lsdev -c processor' concurs, and 'lsattr -El procX' shows that SMT is enabled and...

Hrd in AIX 7.1 - what's it good for ?
greetings -
just noticed that on my aix 7.1 systems, they're running 'hrd' under SRC. Some lite googling reveals an association with HFI, which I believe is the p775 HPC interface ?

yep, we're serving disk local to the VIOs in chunks as LVs to the client LPARs. Thank you for your explanation of active/passive MWC ("in your case, ... one path was down and it is clear..."). That...

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

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...

What LPP provides /usr/include/des_crypt.h ?
as in subject. I've got bos.rte.security and I see /usr/lib/libdes.a , but the des_crypt.h header is not to be found.

I'm running 6.1 and need an answer for that release, BTW.

TIA!
