Preserving current Instant Capacity information

If you reinstall HP-UX on a partition with Instant Capacity (for example, installing HP-UX by either cold-installing or installing from a “golden image”), all information in the Instant Capacity configuration file disappears unless you do the following:

  1. Before the reinstall, manually save your Instant Capacity data and processor allocation history by backing up the following files:

    1. HP-UX: /etc/.iCOD_data
      OpenVMS: SYS$SYSTEM:SYS$ICAP.DAT

    2. HP-UX: /var/adm/icap.log
      OpenVMS: SYS$MANAGER:ICAP.LOG

    3. HP-UX: /var/adm/icap.log.old

    These files are restored in Step 3 below.

  2. Install the appropriate HP-UX or OpenVMS Operating Environment (OE) from its media onto the partition. The Instant Capacity software bundle B9073BA is installed automatically when the HP-UX OE is installed, and the Instant Capacity software bundle BA484AA is installed automatically on OpenVMS systems.

  3. Restore your Instant Capacity data and processor allocation history files:

    1. HP-UX: /etc/.iCOD_data
      OpenVMS: SYS$SYSTEM:SYS$ICAP.DAT

    2. HP-UX: /var/adm/icap.log
      OpenVMS: SYS$MANAGER:ICAP.LOG

    3. HP-UX: /var/adm/icap.log.old

  4. If the system is a Global Instant Capacity Group Manager, additional steps described in Chapter 7 “Global Instant Capacity” are necessary to configure the Group Manager.

If the above procedure is not done, all of the Instant Capacity change history and system-contact information is lost.
