Re: Cache Batteries and VIOS



fixed

We setup our partitions hosted by VIOS 'in case' we wanted to attach a SAN
down the road.
Today the base system controller hosts VIOS and a pair of 5805 controllers
are used to support our IBM i Guest Partitions. So VIOS owns our 5805 and
those disks are used for IBM i partitions, hence we need to manage the
batteries via VIOS.

I tried to find it once, it's supposed to be inside the smitty under raid
cards but never got the nice "cache enabled XXX days remaining" from ibm i.
Besides, who in their right mind buys a RAID controller for a system which
IS NOT SUPPOSED to use Raid? i mean, IBM Best Practices is to mirror via
software the rootvg and leave it like that (and not use the controller for
anything else)...

I figured out the Suse Linux version of STRSST. It's iprconfig
I showed that to our local IBM CE and he handled the batteries just fine.
I've yet to find it in VIOS.

Our local IBM techs are clueless on how to handle failing the cache
batteries on controllers owned by VIOS. I have figured out how/where to
fail to fail them, but just one question. Once the batteries are
replaced,
will the cache come back on line like it does under IBM i? I am guessing
it is a function of the card not the OS, but wanted to make sure.

Thanks
