6.3.3 Example of Operations for Reserving a System Board Unassignment
If you cannot make operations related to the operation status or configuration of a logical domain, the operation status or configuration of a physical partition, or the dynamic reconfiguration of a physical partition, reserve the unassignment of the system board (PSB) from the physical partition. By stopping a physical partition at an appropriate time during system operation, the PSB is unassigned from the physical partition. The PSB enters the system board pool state.

The operation example presented here uses XSCF shell commands.
  1. Execute the showpparstatus command to check the physical partition operation status.
XSCF> showpparstatus -p 0
PPAR-ID PPAR Status
00      Running
  1. Execute the showboards command to check the status of the PSB to be deleted.
XSCF> showboards 01-0
PSB  PPAR-ID(LSB) Assignment  Pwr  Conn Conf Test    Fault
---- ------------ ----------- ---- ---- ---- ------- --------

  1. Execute the deleteboard command with the -c reserve option specified to reserve the deletion of the PSB.
XSCF> deleteboard -c reserve 01-0
  1. Execute the showresult command to check the exit status of the deleteboard command just executed.
  1. In the following example, exit status of 0 is returned, indicating normal termination of the deleteboard command.
XSCF> showresult
0
  1. Execute the showboards command with the -v option specified to check the PSB status and confirm that the deletion of the PSB is reserved.
    Because the following example shows "*" in the [R] column, which represents the reserved state, the deletion of the PSB is correctly reserved.
XSCF> showboards -v 01-0
PSB  R PPAR-ID(LSB) Assignment  Pwr  Conn Conf Test    Fault

  1. Restart the physical partition.
  1. Check the physical partition operation status by using the showpparstatus command. 
  1. The next example shows "Running" in the [PPAR Status] column, indicating that the physical partition is operating correctly.
XSCF> showpparstatus -p 0
PPAR-ID PPAR Status
00      Running
  1. Execute the showboards command to check the PSB status.
  1. The following example shows that PSB 01-0 is in the system board pool state.
XSCF> showboards -p 0
