The HP Virtual Server Environment : Example nPartition Management Scenario (part 3) - Creating a new nPartition

10/14/2013 7:33:33 PM

Creating a new nPartition

The rex01 partition is now extended to the desired size, as shown in Table 2. The final configuration task associated with the hardware upgrade is to create the new nPartition, rex02. Figure 6 shows the rex complex with the changes made thus far. Notice that cell 2 and the attached I/O chassis 0/0 are assigned to rex01, but they are not active (as indicated by the icon next to the cell). Cell 3 and I/O chassis 8/0/1 are both available and will be used to create the new nPartition rex02.

The Create nPartition link is selected from the nPartition portion of the actions menu, which opens the Create nPartition wizard. The first step in creating an nPartition is to set the name. In this example, the name of the nPartition is rex02. The second step is to select the cells that will be assigned to the nPartition shown in the Create nPartition Select Cells screen in Figure 7. This screen allows simple point-and-click selection of the cells to be assigned to the nPartition. In this example, the only cell available is cell 3, so it is selected with a checkbox next to the cell.

Subsequent steps in the Create nPartition wizard are similar to the options available in the Modify nPartition dialog. Setting the core cell choice, configuring cell local memory, and other options are all available in the wizard. Before performing the requested changes to the complex, consult the summary pages Partition Manager provides, which give detailed information regarding the nPartition that will be created. The final step in the process of creating an nPartition is the Finish page, show in Figure 8. As with the Modify nPartition task, the Command Preview is presented. Once again, remote management via IPMI over LAN is being utilized, as is evident by the –h and –g command-line options.

The changes to the rex complex are now complete. The rex01 nPartition has been extended to include the newly added cell 2 and I/O chassis 8/0/0. The rex02 nPartition has been created using the remaining new hardware resources, cell 3 and I/O chassis 8/0/1. Figure 9 shows the final configuration of the complex. Notice, however, that the newly added resources are inactive, as shown by the icon next to each hardware component. Rebooting the rex01 nPartition and booting the rex02 nPartition are the final steps in this example scenario.
