IT16534: PowerVC SCG constraints not working for NovaLink host
Closed as unreproducible in next release.
Power Virtualization Center (PowerVC) Storage Connectivity Group (SCG) constraints do not work perfectly for NovaLink hosts. In a dual fabric & VIOS setup, when user likes to have each fabric mapped to each VIOS, the zoning for a NovaLink hosts results in lesser number of adapters than expected. This is because, PowerVC end up mapping fabric to just one VIOS rather than all VIOS. There is no specific error in the logs but user can identify this issue by checking the number of adapters created as part of a Virtual Machine deploy on a NovaLink host. Impact: Lesser number of adapters and zones are created than desired as per SCG configuration.
There is no usage change to avoid this issue
This issue is resolved in PowerVC v1.3.1 FP2 Platforms: All PowerVC supported Platforms. Versions: PowerVC v220.127.116.11
