Please provide command to reset hardware adapter from command line rather than need to sign on to SST, go to hardware service manager, search for correct adapter and IPL I/O processor.
As we see more and more LPARs being virtualized (NPIV) we have the need more often to IPL IOPs to rescan FC network for new, changed or removed devices. Mostly we see this for tape handling issues. As a lot of tape drives are capable of being attached through multipath we not only have to reset one but at least two CMBxx adapters. Depending on setup - if you have a second tape library on a second location - we might have to reset 2 more adapters. And this for multiple LPARs!
