PLM setup

  • Each LPAR to be managed through PLM must be configured using the "plmsetup" command

  • Required parameters for the "plmsetup" command are:

    • Fully qualified host name of client LPAR
    • PLM user name, usually "root"
  • The "plmsetup" command requires "rsh" access to the client LPAR

    • "rsh" can be turned off after the initial setup
  • Test the PLM setup using the following command:

  • CT_CONTACT=<fullyQualifiedHostName> lsrsrc IBM.LPAR

  • If the above command returns information, the setup is correct

For assistance with designing, implementing, and supporting, your automated CPU and Memory allocation and deallocation using Partition Load Manager (PLM), please contact Mt Xia.
