Moving Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO ServerHelpful Member!

I have Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server for several LPARs.

When I move the cdrom onto another lpar, these steps are supposed to take care of it, it doesn't.  Pls let me know if there is any other way to be done.

// on the current lpar.

# lsdev –Cc cdrom
cd0 Available  Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

# rmdev –Rdl vscsi0
cd0 deleted
vscsi0 deleted
 
// on another lpar

# cfgmgr -v
# lsdev –Cc cdrom
cd0 Available  Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

thx much

Based on your output, it seems to work ok?

You don't even have to delete the device, unconfigure is enough:

// on the current lpar.

# lsdev –Cc cdrom
cd0 Available  Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

# rmdev –Rl vscsi0
cd0 defined
vscsi0 defined
 
# lsdev –Cc cdrom
cd0 Defined    Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

// on another lpar

# cfgmgr -v
# lsdev –Cc cdrom
cd0 Available  Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

or if you have the device already defined on both LPARs once and then unconfigured, no remove:

// on the current lpar.

# lsdev –Cc cdrom
cd0 Available  Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

# rmdev –Rl vscsi0
cd0 defined
vscsi0 defined
 
# lsdev –Cc cdrom
cd0 Defined    Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

// on another lpar

# mkdev -l vscsi0
# mkdev -l cd0
# lsdev –Cc cdrom
cd0 Available  Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

Plus, make sure that all vscsi (vscsi0) adapters on all LPARs point to the same vhost adapter of the VIO server that is serving the cd0 as vtopt0. And also make sure that this particular vhost adapter of that VIO server is linked to ANY vscsi adapter on ANY vlient LPAR.

HTH,
