3.1.5 System in Which Multiple Remote Power Management Groups are Set


3.1.5 System in Which Multiple Remote Power Management Groups are Set
If multiple physical partitions (PPARs) are set in the SPARC M10-4S system, each physical partition can be set to a different remote power management group.
This section describes how to configure the remote power management by using a configuration in which a system that is configured with one SPARC M10-4, SPARC M10-4S with physical partitions (PPAR#0, PPAR#1, PPAR#2, and PPAR#3), and two remote power distribution units is divided into two groups as an example.
  1. Group 1: SPARC M10-4 x 1, PPAR#0 and PPAR#1 in SPARC M10-4S, Remote power distribution unit x 1
  2. Group 2: PPAR#2 and PPAR#3 in SPARC M10-4, Remote power distribution unit x 1
The basic setting process is the same as written in "3.1.1  System That is Configured with a Host Node and an I/O Node." However, multiple remote power management groups must be set.
  1. Collect necessary information for a management file and create the file.
    Collect the IP address and MAC address of the device where the remote power management will be configured. Based on the collected information, create a management file in CSV format for each remote power management group. The line feed code is LF or CR+LF.
  1. When multiple remote power management groups are set, a management file must be created for each remote power management group. For details of the items, see "3.1.2  System That is Configured with a Host Node and a Remote Power Distribution Unit."
    Set a unique "GroupID" for the management file of each remote power management group.
  1. In the following, how to configure the remote power management is described based on the configuration below.
    - Use only XSCF-LAN#0 of SPARC M10-4/M10-4S.

    - Set the remote power management by classifying the entire SPARC M10-4 and PPAR#0 and PPAR#1 of the SPARC M10-4S system as group 1.

    - Set the remote power management by classifying PPAR#2 and PPAR#3 of the SPARC M10-4S system as group 2.

    - Use the system by connecting one I/O device to a remote power distribution unit.

    - Interlock between power-on and power-off actions (only interlocking between power-on actions can be enabled for the host nodes).

  1. Enable the IPMI service that is to be used for the remote power management function.
    Execute it by logging into the XSCF shell of all the host nodes and master host nodes where the remote power management is configured.
XSCF> setpacketfilters -c ipmi_port enable
  1. Configure a remote power management group using the created management file.
    a. Execute the showremotepwrmgmt command to confirm that the remote power management is not configured.

    Check the above by logging into the XSCF shell of all the host nodes and master host nodes where the remote power management is configured. When configuring the remote power management for the first time, it is normally assumed that the remote power management is not set.
  1.    In the following example, the remote power management is not set.
XSCF> showremotepwrmgmt -a
Remote power management group is not configured.
  1. If the existing settings for the remote power management are valid, initialize the settings according to the following process.
XSCF> clearremotepwrmgmt -a
All remote power management group informations are cleared.Continue? [y|n]: y
  1. b. Execute the setremotepwrmgmt command to set a remote power management group.

    Execute this step by logging into the XSCF shell of either a host node or master host node in the remote power management group.
  1. Specify the management file created in step 1 and configure a remote power management group.
  1. Execute the following steps to download the management file of the remote power management group to a USB memory stick.

    1) Insert a USB memory stick into the USB port, on which "MAINTENANCE ONLY" is printed, on the back panel of the XSCF unit.

    The USB memory stick must be FAT32 format.

    The management file can be downloaded by using a USB memory stick or by specifying an http, https, or ftp server.

    2) Execute the setremotepwrmgmt command to set a remote power management group.

    If the settings of the downloaded management file are correct, enter "y" for "Continue? [y|n]:" to apply them.

  1. Execute the setremotepwrmgmt command to enable the remote power management function.
    Execute this step for all host nodes and master host nodes where the remote power management is set.

    This step does not need to be executed for host nodes and master host nodes in each group if they are registered in multiple remote power management groups. Executing this command once will enable the remote power management function for the multiple remote power management groups.

    Enable the remote power management function by logging in to the master XSCF for each SPARC M12 or SPARC M10 and executing the command.
XSCF> setremotepwrmgmt -c enable
Remote power management is enabled. Continue? [y|n]: y
The command completed successfully.
  1. Current setting details can be checked with the showremotepwrmgmt command.
