The tools for booting nPartitions and configuring related settings are:

  • Service Processor (MP or GSP) Menus

    Service processor menus provide a complex-wide service interface that can allow access to all hardware and nPartitions.

    See “Command Reference for Service Processor Commands”.

  • EFI Boot Manager and EFI Shell

    On HP Integrity servers only, the EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) Boot Manager and Shell are the methods for interacting with an nPartition before it has booted an operating system.

    See “Command Reference for EFI Shell Commands”.

  • Boot Console Handler (BCH) Menu Commands

    On PA-RISC servers, the BCH interface is the method for interacting with an nPartition before it has booted HP-UX.

    See “Command Reference for BCH Menu Commands”.

  • nPartition Commands

    HP nPartition commands allow you to configure, manage, and monitor nPartitions and hardware within a server complex.

    The Enhanced nPartition Commands also can remotely manage complexes based on the HP sx1000 chipset or HP sx2000 chipset.

    See “Commands for Configuring nPartitions” for details.

  • Partition Manager (/opt/parmgr/bin/parmgr)

    Partition Manager provides a graphical interface for managing and monitoring nPartitions and hardware within a server complex.

    See “Partition Manager”.
