Accidental Activation of an Instant Capacity Cell Board

  Table of Contents

  Index

If you inadvertently activate an Instant Capacity cell board, you can de-activate it by following this two step procedure:

  1. Set the cell board’s use-on-next-boot flag to “n” (no) using the parmodify command

  2. Perform a reboot of the nPartition (this is not necessary if there was no reboot after the activation)

Example 6-4 De-activating a cell board in cabinet 0, slot 5, nPartition 3 (HP-UX)

For example, changing the use-on-next-boot flag to “n” on the Instant Capacity cell board in cabinet 0, slot 5, in nPartition 3 can be accomplished via the following command:

/usr/sbin/parmodify -p 3 -m 0/5::n:

The “n” in the above command line sets the cell board’s use-on-next-boot flag to “no” and causes the cell board to not participate in the nPartition when it is booted.

See the HP System Partitions Guide for details about adding and configuring cells in nPartitions.
