    AIX LPAR Creation, what is required?

    Chad Johnson

      I have searched through the doc, support.bmc.com and in the community but I cannot find a comprehensive list of requirements and steps to create a new LPAR and then provision an OS on it.

       

      I have reviewed the following but none point me to the whole picture:

      Is there any doc available for AIX LPAR provisioning via BSA

      https://docs.bmc.com/docs/display/public/bsa83/Manually+creating+a+Virtual+Guest+Package

      https://docs.bmc.com/docs/display/public/bsa83/Provisioning+process+for+AIX

      https://docs.bmc.com/docs/display/public/bsa83/Setting+up+the+NIM+environment+for+provisioning

       

      All I can find are the requirements of the NIM Master (agent v 7.4+, folder requirments and structure, etc).  I cannot find anything about createing the LPAR itself.  Wouldn't this normally be done from the HMC/VIO?

       

      Can anyone point me to the correct docs?

       

      TIA
