Known issues

VIOS ITM

The following issues exist for the VIOS Premium agent:

When defining the partition profile for VIOS or IVM, if the Virtual SCSI Server adapter has been created with remote partition set to "Any
Partition" for a particular server slot, instead of specifying a partition name, the Storage Mapping for this slot will not be displayed in the ITM
workspace.
Data from the "Storage Mapping" attribute group is misaligned. Use one of the following workarounds

1. Remove the hostname alias from the /etc/hosts file in the VIOS partition.

OR
2. If the alias is not defined, then change the NSORDER environment variable to "NSORDER=local" or change the /etc/netsvc.conf file to use the
local /etc/hosts file.

OR
3. Make the following changes to aixDataProvider.pl for the function "Storage_Mappings" and "Network_Mappings":

From:
chomp(my $output = `host $vio_hostname`);
my ($trash, $trash2, $ip) = split(/\s+/, $output);
my $vio_ip = $ip;

To:
chomp(my $output = `host $vio_hostname`);
my ($trash, $trash2, $ip) = split(/\s+/, $output);
my $vio_ip = $ip;
$vio_ip =~ s/\,$//;

On reboot of VIOS, users will receive the error message listed below. This error message should be ignored. Restarting the ITM agents on
reboot is handled by the 'cfgsvc' command. sh: /etc/rc.itm1: 0403-006 Execute permission denied
During install/update of VIOS, user may receive the following message, which should be ignored:

Installation information

Prior to installation

Removing interim fixes

All Interim Fixes applied to the VIOS must be manually removed before applying Fix Pack 11.1. VIOS customers that applied interim fixes to the
VIOS should use the following procedure to remove them prior to applying Fix Pack 11.1.

# oem_setup_env /*from the VIOS command line


# emgr -P /*list installed efix's (by label)
# emgr -r -L /* for each additional efix listed, run to remove
# exit

Fix Pack 11.1 updates your VIOS partition to ioslevel V1.5.2.1-FP-11.1. To determine if Fix Pack 11.1 is already installed, run the ioslevel
command per the following procedure to determine if the VIOS ioslevel is V1.5.2.1-FP-11.1:

# ioslevel /* from the VIOS command line

If the above procedure shows that the VIOS Fix Pack 11.1 is not installed, use the installation instructions included in this Readme.

Note: After you install the Fix Pack, you must reboot the VIOS Server.

Installing

Notes:

1. The installation and upgrade instructions for installing a Fix Pack have been changed. Please read the instructions under "Installing the Fix Pack".

…ibm.com/ecc/…/VIOS_1.5.2.1_FixPack_11.1.readme 4/16
8/16/2010 ftp://delivery04-mul.dhe.ibm.com/ecc/hsb/H2148345…
2. The size of the FixPack has increased due to the enablement of Tivoli products.

If you are updating from an ioslevel prior to 1.3.0.1, the updateios command may indicate several failures (i.e. missing requisites) during fix
pack installation. These messages are expected. Proceed with the update if you are prompted to "Continue with the installation [y/n]".

Applying updates from a local hard disk


To apply the updates from a directory on your local hard disk, follow one of these two procedures, depending on your currently installed level of
VIOS.

A. If the current level of the VIOS is earlier than V1.2.0.0 (V1.0 or V1.1):

NOTE:
If you are updating from VIOS level 1.1, you must update to the 10.1 level of the Fix Pack before updating to the 11.1 level of Fix Pack. In other
words, if you are at level 1.1, updating to the 11.1 Fix Pack is a two-step process: First, update to version 10.1 Fix Pack, and then update to the 11.1
Fix Pack.

Contact your IBM Service Representative to obtain the VIOS 10.1 Fix Pack.

After you install the 10.1 Fix Pack, follow these steps to install the 11.1 Fix Pack.

1. Login to the VIOS as the user padmin.


2. Create a directory on the Virtual I/O Server.
$ mkdir
3. Using ftp, transfer the update file(s) to the directory you created.
4. Commit previous updates, by running the updateios command
$ updateios -commit
5. Apply the update by running the updateios command
$ updateios -accept -dev
6. Verify that update was successful by checking results of the updateios command and running the ioslevel command. It should indicate the
ioslevel is now V1.5.2.1-FP-11.1.
$ ioslevel
7. To load all changes, reboot the VIOS as User padmin
$ shutdown -restart

8/16/2010 ftp://delivery04-mul.dhe.ibm.com/ecc/hsb/H2148345…
B. If the current level of the VIOS is V1.2 through V1.5:

1. Login to the VIOS as the user padmin.


2. Create a directory on the Virtual I/O Server.
$ mkdir
3. Using ftp, transfer the update file(s) to the directory you created.
4. Commit previous updates, by running the updateios command
$ updateios -commit
5. Apply the update by running the updateios command
$ updateios -accept -install -dev
6. Verify that update was successful by checking results of the updateios command and running the ioslevel command. It should indicate the
ioslevel is now V1.5.2.1-FP-11.1.
$ ioslevel
7. To load all changes, reboot the VIOS as User padmin
$ shutdown -restart

Applying updates from a remotely mounted file system


If the remote file system is to be mounted read-only, follow one of these two procedures, depending on your currently installed level of VIOS.

A. If the current level of the VIOS is earlier than V1.2.0.0 (V1.0 or V1.1):

NOTE:
If you are updating from VIOS level 1.1, you must update to the 10.1 level of the Fix Pack before updating to the 11.1 level of Fix Pack. In other
words, if you are at level 1.1, updating to the 11.1 Fix Pack is a two-step process: First, update to version 10.1 Fix Pack, and then update to the 11.1
Fix Pack.

Contact your IBM Service Representative to obtain the VIOS 10.1 Fix Pack.

After you install the 10.1 Fix Pack, follow these steps to install the 11.1 Fix Pack.

1. Login to the VIOS as the user padmin.


2. Mount the remote directory onto the Virtual I/O Server.

$ mount remote_machine_name:directory /mnt
3. Commit previous updates, by running the updateios command
$ updateios -commit
4. Apply the update by running the updateios command.
$ updateios -accept -dev /mnt
5. Verify that update was successful by checking results of the updateios command and running the ioslevel command. It should indicate the
ioslevel is now V1.5.2.1-FP-11.1.
$ ioslevel
6. To load all changes, reboot the VIOS as User padmin
$ shutdown -restart

B. If the current level of the VIOS is V1.2 through V1.5:

3. Commit previous updates, by running the updateios command
$ updateios -commit
4. Apply the update by running the updateios command
$ updateios -accept -install -dev /mnt
5. Verify that update was successful by checking results of the updateios command and running the ioslevel command. It should indicate the
ioslevel is now V1.5.2.1-FP-11.1.
$ ioslevel
6. To load all changes, reboot the VIOS as User padmin

Additional information

Fix Pack 11.1 provides a migration path for existing Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) installations. Applying this package will upgrade the VIOS to the latest
level, V1.5.2.1.

Review the list of fixes included in Fix Pack 11.1.

Users of IBM Tivoli Monitoring (ITM) should read about known issues and limitations.

VIOSs installed with the previous VIOS install media (LCD4-7462-07, LCD4-7462-08 or LCD8-0819-00), or running with a Fix Pack prior to Fix
Pack 11.1, should be updated by applying Fix Pack 11.1.

In order to take full advantage of all the function available in the VIOS (including SEA bandwidth apportioning.), it is necessary to be at system
firmware level SF235 or later. SF230_120 is the minimum level of SF230 firmware supported by the Virtual I/O Server. If a system firmware update
is necessary, it is recommended that the firmware be updated before upgrading the VIOS to V1.5.2.1.

For recommended or supported combinations of HMC and system firmware levels, refer to the POWER Code Matrix

There is no migration path from an HMC-managed VIOS to an IVM-managed VIOS. Fix Pack 11.1 includes the IVM code, but it will not be
enabled on HMC-managed systems. Fix Pack 11.1, like all VIOS fix packs, can be applied to either HMC-managed or IVM-managed VIOS.

List of fixes

Fixes in Fix Pack 11.1 (VIOS V1.5.2.1) include:

Added support for Bandwidth apportioning for Shared Ethernet Adapter.


Added support for a Shared Ethernet Adapter accounting tool (new CLI command "seastat").
Added virtual switch support to Partition Mobility commands.
