7.3 Powering On a Physical Partition


7.3 Powering On a Physical Partition
Use the poweron command of the XSCF firmware to power on physical partitions individually.
Execute the command with a user account that has the platadm or fieldeng privilege. Alternatively, you can also execute it with a user account that has the pparadm or pparmgr privilege for the target physical partition. 
XSCF> poweron -p ppar_id
To specify a physical partition, specify the -p ppar_id option. You can specify a numeric value from 0 to 15 for ppar_id, which is the PPAR-ID of the physical partition to be started.
Execution of the command outputs a confirmation message. Enter "y".
Note - The SPARC M12-2/M10-1/M10-4 has only one physical partition, so only 0 can be specified for its PPAR-ID.
After the command is executed, the specified physical partition is powered on. After that, all the logical domains in the physical partition are started. The control domain is started first, and then the other domains are started in no particular order.
Note - If the setpparparam command of the XSCF firmware has suppressed auto boot of a control domain, the suppressed control domain is not started. Furthermore, if the setpparmode command has suppressed auto boot of a physical partition and logical domains, the suppressed logical domains are not started. For details of the setpparparam and setpparmode commands, see the setpparparam(8) and setpparmode(8) command man pages or the Fujitsu SPARC M12 and Fujitsu M10/SPARC M10 XSCF Reference Manual.
Operation Procedure
  1. Execute the poweron command to power on the specified physical partition.
    The following example powers on PPAR-ID 00.
XSCF> poweron -p 0
PPAR-IDs to power on:00
Continue? [y|n] :y
00 :Powering on

*Note*
 This command only issues the instruction to power-on.
 The result of the instruction can be checked by the "showpparprogress".

  1. The physical partition with PPAR-ID 00 is powered on. All the logical domains in the physical partition are started.
  2. Execute the showpparprogress command, and confirm that the power of the specified physical partition is on.
