Resetting an LPAR on a Power4 system

First you need to check some information for your system on the HMC. Issue the command vtmenu to get the managed system ID and the names of the partitions

hscroot@localhost:~> vtmenu

Retrieving name of managed system(s) . . . 108F19C

———————————————————-
Partitions On Managed System: 108F19C
———————————————————-
1) MANUFACTURING Running:
2) RETAIL Running:

Enter Number of Running Partition (q to quit): q

Bye.

On this example I tried to soft reset the partition called MANUFACTURING

hscroot@localhost:~> chsysstate -m 108F19C -r lpar -n MANUFACTURING -o reset

Since it didn’t work out as expected, I decided to power off the LPAR

hscroot@localhost:~> chsysstate -m 108F19C -r lpar -n MANUFACTURING -o off

hscroot@localhost:~> vtmenu

Retrieving name of managed system(s) . . . 108F19C

———————————————————-
Partitions On Managed System: 108F19C
———————————————————-
1) MANUFACTURING Ready:
2) RETAIL Running:

Enter Number of Running Partition (q to quit): q

Bye.

I turned the partition on and after that it worked flawlessly

hscroot@localhost:~> chsysstate -r lpar -m 108F19C -o on -n MANUFACTURING

hscroot@localhost:~> vtmenu

Retrieving name of managed system(s) . . . 108F19C

Partitions On Managed System: 108F19C
———————————————————-
1) MANUFACTURING Starting:
2) RETAIL Running:

Enter Number of Running Partition (q to quit): q

Bye.
