Possibility to 'quiesce' (or 'unmanage') entire VMRM cluster during SW upgrades
Under 'Description' write the details of your new idea: On a 'HA' cluster with 2 Hosts we had to upgrade the HMCs from v9 to v10, during the upgrade the KSYS logged the event HMC_UNREACHABLE even though it's expected that the HMC may not be Fully ...
A customer is hitting an issue that we have seen a few times with customers. Discover / verify operation fails with the following error when issuing an inquiry command:migmgr -f get_adapter -t vscsi -s U9080.M9S.21D5C47-V2-C418 -w 1385770584273256...
ksysmgr - do not suggest running discover on empty workgroup
When the last VM is removed from a workgroup, ksysmgr should not suggest running a "discovery to apply changes" (should say "discover" as there is no "discovery" process) against the empty workgroup because it is not needed and the resulting retur...
Remove host from cluster when removed from host_group
The host should be completely removed from the cluster when it is removed from a host_group. This would match the same action occurring with VMs - they are completely removed from the cluster when they are removed from a workgroup.
Let's take this scenario: we have two datacenters, each one has the same number of POWER servers managed by VMRM. We have two KSYS consoles - one in each datacenter. Basic idea is, when 1 DC acts as primary, while 2nd as standby. I'd like to have ...
I've a VMRM HA cluster with 2 Hosts and 2 VIOS per Host. During firmware update or other maintenance on FC or ETH adapters connections are disruppted for a short time. During this activity the KSYS received notification of some Critical Events. My...
Case TS004589009:Before we move our LPARS into backup location using VMRM DR, we run 'ksysmgr verify' to make sure there will not be any issues during move. Although "verify" process reports success, real move fails on insufficient resources.
