  • 2. Unplugging the SP frames' power
    Odd question... I just retired our SP cluster. Electrical circuits has been disabled via breaker panel, and all nodes/frame/etc has power switch set to 'Off'. Now we have each frame's 3-phase NEMA connectors to disconnect from the circuits. I know they have huge capacitors inside them according to our IBM CE whom commented on it long ago. (His words were actually: "Never, ever lick the plug ends." "Why?" "[...]" "Oh." :) ) Is there a minimum amount of time that we need to wait for capacitor discharge before we can safely remove the power cords from the circuits? A day? A few weeks? A few hours? Right away? -Dan
  • 3. dev_t in 32-bit cfgxxx program and 64-bit driver
    I've been trying to port a working 32-bit driver (sorry - kernel extension ;-) to 64-bit AIX 5.2 Having studied "AIX5.2 Kernel Extensions and Device Support Programming Concepts" and the Technical Reference, I've come to a halt about a simple issue that surely someone has run into before (but I can't see posted here). I have a cfgxxx method that reads the ODM database, loads the driver with loadext() and configures it with sysconfig(). All the methods that come with AIX in /usr/lib/methods are 32-bit so, in the apparent absence of documentation on the topic, I thought it likely that mine should also remain a 32-bit app. Yes - I tried compiling and linking the cfgxxx program as a 64-bit app and it flat refuses to work - busresolve() fails with an undocumented errno 47. So that, I thought, was that - it simply _has_ to be a 32-bit app, but there's the rub... The dev_t value for the device file must be calculated by the configure method and passed to the driver through sysconfig() for use by devswadd(). In the configure method it is defined as a 32-bit value with the major number in bits 16-31 but the driver expects a full-blown 64-bit value with the major number in bits 32-63. So, my question is, how do I use and link functions for a 64-bit dev_t in my 32-bit cfgxxx program? A read a posting here about using DEV_64L (presumably in d_ops) but that didn't help.

  • 5. device driver missing!!!
    hi all, i'm involved in a AIX4.3.3 -> AIX5.2 migration and i'm missing the device driver for an FC adapter (EMulex LP8000). cfgmgr reponse is: cfgmgr: 0514-621 [...] devices.pci.fibre-channel:devices.pci.df1001f8:devices.pci.df1001f8:devices.pci.pciclass.0c0400 because lsdev doesn't return any fc adapter ready, I think i must install devices.pci.df1001f8 Where can i get it? someone of you can send me this fileset? thanks in advance. ----------------------- Jose Fco.

PSSP 3.1 and AIX 5.2 compatibility?

I may have to upgrade some SP2 nodes and the CWS from AIX 4.3.3 PSSP 3.1
to AIX 5.2
I guess I need to upgrade PSSP also but I have found the information.

You need at least PSSP 3.5 for AIX 5.2.

 From what I have read on Ibm Web,  it is not possible to migrate from 
3.1 (or 3.1.x) to 3.5 in one step.
Migration path from 3.1.1 to 3.4 is possible, on AIX 4.3.3
Migration from 3.2 or 3.4 to 3.5 is possible with migration to AIX 5.2.
Could you confirm?

That's what I remember hearing, too.

I'm afraid I can't confirm because I retired the SP nodes (AIX 4.3.3 and
PSSP 3.1) a few weeks ago, and don't have newer PSSP than 3.1.

I'm sure that a few people here has done a PSSP 3.1/4.3.3 upgrade to
PSSP 3.5/5.2. I think I remember seeing a few posts in last few months
talking about that PSSP upgrade. Maybe check Google archives?

PSSP 3.5 will NOT run on AIX433, so first go to PSSP3.4, then AIX to
5.2. and then PSSP 3.5
Always the CWS on the highest level in the SP cluster.
Maybe you should migrate to CSM, there is a nice transition guide

1.Reverse binary compatibility between AIX 5.2 and AIX 5.1

Hi ,

 I wrote a simple "hello world" program on AIX5.2 using gcc compiler .

 The resultant binary exe(name - getpqstatus) when i ran on AIX5.1 it
is giving the
below error :

  exec(): 0509-036 Cannot load program ./getpqstatus because of the
following errors:
        0509-130 Symbol resolution failed for getpqstatus because:
        0509-136   Symbol __strtollmax (number 15) is not exported from

Does anyone has any idea why this is happening ..? Does even simple
programs compiled in AIX5.2 do not run on AIX5.1 ...?

Any help will be really helpful and appreciated ...

Thanks and Regards

2.Binary compatibility of AIX 4.2.1 app on AIX 5.2

I have a legacy application that works on AIX 4.2.1 and as we are upgrading 
the hardware

the 2 AIX

Any advice on what to do if it doesn't work? Am I screwed?
