PowerHA IP migration

PowerHA IP migration

PowerHA IP migration

Hi AIX gurus

A client has decided to create a separate (production) network for their application which runs in a WPAR in a VIO environment. VIOS version is This means new ip addresses for the cluster which has five resource groups.

I am totally new to PowerHA and have never migrated IP addresses in a cluster before so I would like your expertise regarding the procedure and any gotchas to watch out for.

Some questions for clarification:

I would appreciate some tips and shared experience.

Here's some basic info about the environment (from the primary site).
