Hi all,

I have very strange issue here and I blame the OS API but just in case
maybe someone has encountered the same issue.

So i have 7 V6R1 LPAR's on 9117-MMC P7 which are in a separate shared
processor pool with max 4 prc. limit to this pool and 4 prc OS licenses.
WRKLICINF for 5761SS!/V6/5051 shows that the usage limit is 4 but the usage
count accross all LPAR's is 16 which is not possible for sure because of
the limitation of the shared pool.

I get CPF9E7F every hour and I'm getting anoyed since my customer thinks
that this is a BIG issue, which is not :

Message ID . . . . . . : CPF9E7F Severity . . . . . . . : 40
Message type . . . . . : Information
Date sent . . . . . . : Time sent . . . . . . :

Message . . . . : i5/OS usage limit exceeded - operator action required.
Cause . . . . . : The processor usage limit of 4 processors for product
5761SS1, license term V6, feature 5051 has been exceeded.
-- Current processor usage across all active i5/OS partitions is 4,00.
-- Current processor usage for the local partition is 1,00.

I checked 100 times that the LPAR is in the correct pool but even then it
shows the wrong usage across all the LPAR's.

My system is with firmware AM740_100.

I assume that API QSYS/QLZARCAPI is bugged but I can't be sure.

Any clues, PTF or some trick?

Best Regards,
