Template on HMC V8R8.6.0
« on: March 22, 2020, 03:41:04 PM »
Hello,
I use the template function to deploy an AIX partition, with the option "Configure Virtual Fiber Channel storage during deployment".
I would like to modify the numbers of the "Fiber Channel Adapter ID / Partner Adapter ID" cards to follow my own numbering model,
To better identify the cards of my VIOS, especially for Live Partition Mobility etc...
My VIOS and AIX Partition is confugureed with max_virtual_slot = 1000

Frame1 PROD:
 - VIOS1 Server Fiber Channel Adapter ID / Partner Adapter ID: 100,101,102 etc.
 - VIOS2 Server Fiber Channel Adapter ID / Partner Adapter ID: ID 200,201,202 etc.
Frame1 TEST:
 - VIOS3 Server Fiber Channel Adapter ID / Partner Adapter ID: ID 300,301,302 etc.
 - VIOS4 Server Fiber Channel Adapter ID / Partner Adapter ID: ID 400,401,402 etc.
 

When I launch on the HMC:
Templates and OS Images / Partition / Action Deploy
Virtual Storage Configuration / Virual Fiber channel / Edit Connections
When I modify "Next Available" to put my numbers but it is not taken into account, on the VIOS it is the numbers 1,2,3 etc. which are added.

My HMC version:
"version= Version: 8
 Release: 8.6.0
 Service Pack: 3
HMC Build level 20180802.1
MH01784: Fix for HMC V8R8.6.0 SP3 (08-02-2018)
","base_version=V8R8.6.0

Do you have an idea to modify these numbers on the AIX Partition and the VIOS at the time of deployment or on the template ?
Thank you.
