VMRM Discover/Verify - VM_CONFIG_COLLECTION_FAILURE for one LPar must not impact others
We've VMRM 'HA' cluster among 2 Hosts. I had 5 VMs as 'managed', then i ran a Hostgroup discover + verify. Due to a HW failure the 'discover' failed for 2 VMs with event VM_CONFIG_COLLECTION_FAILURE, but was successful for the other 3 VMs. At the ...
Support for multiple VIOS pairs in 1KSYS of VM Recovery Manager HA
Currently VM Recovery Manager HA supports only one VIOS pair per KSYS.In an environment where multiple VIOS pairs are exist on a single node, it is necessary to configure a separate KSYS for each VIOS pair.Therefore, please improve the function so...
Enable fc_mappings feature support in VMRM to be able to manage Migration between physical servers in Hostgroup which have multiple paths to disk
Everybody deploying VMRM can benefit from it.
In fact this is a product limitation for VMRM as the LPM SRR feature directly launched from HMC works properly while VMRM fails to manage this case.
This prevents VMRM form managing properly the autom...
Move the VLAN management from the host_group to the workgroup for more granular management. Away to have a backup of th
We have multiple VLANs in our PROD site, but a single VLAN in DR if the VLAN management was moved to the workgroup level it would be easier to manage the VLANs by creating a workgroup for each VLAN in PROD and mapping the VLAN for the workgroup to...
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 ...
The ksysrppmgr command should be able to adjust the available resources on the managed hosts using the current HMC (V8R8.5.0 and later) POWER® Enterprise Pool capability.
The command currently can only adjust the available memory and processors on a managed system by referencing the HMC and the system it manages. This presents a challenge for adjusting the available resources on the remote managed systems when the ...
Replace Bull Frewware RPMs with IBM Open Source repository RPMs for VM Recovery Manager
It would be much better for this product to use RPMs from IBM's own RPM repository, as managed by yum rather than using a third party RPM repo. Companies that standardize on using the RPMs from IBM's repo must uninstall them to utilize the RPMs fr...
VMRM - make hardcoded timeout interval tunable parameter.
Based on communication with support team dealing with case TS011408072 we would like to rise this idea. In a VMRM 'HA' Cluster, after a failover, there's a hard coded 5 minute timeout for AIX VMs to IPL and start again heartbeating with the VIOSes...
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...
