Problem: Not all cells boot to join
(rendezvous) an nPartition.
Causes: Some cells may
have the use-on-next-boot value set to "n" (do not use), or the cells may
have been powered off, or the cells may have booted too late to participate
in partition rendezvous, or the cells have failed self-tests and cannot be
used, or the cells are incompatible.
Actions: Check the cell use-on-next-boot values and change
them to "y" as needed then reboot for reconfig (HP-UX shutdown -R,
or Windows shutdown /r). Check cell power (frupower
-d -C) and power on any cells as needed, then reboot for reconfig.
Check the cell processor and firmware revisions using (parstatus
-V -c# where # is
the cell number).
As the cells assigned to the nPartition reboot, observe
the boot progress from the Virtual Front Panel (VFP) for the nPartition and
note any problems the cells have proceeding from one boot state to the next;
as needed review chassis logs or event logs using the service processor Show
Chassis Logs or Show Event Logs (SL)
