Error description

  • When attempting to do a Live Partition Mobility, you may see
    the following error:
    
    HSCLA27D The operation to lock the physical device location for
    source adapter XXXXX.XXX.XXXXXXX-V#-C# on the virtual I/O
    server partition <hostname> has failed.
    
    This solution is limited to cases where the specified adapter
    on the source partition is still waiting for its children
    (Virtual Target Devices) to configure, i.e. it has VTDs which
    are in the Defined state and have been in the Defined state
    since the vhost adapter was configured.

Problem summary

  • When attempting to do a Live Partition Mobility, you may see
    the following error:
    
    HSCLA27D The operation to lock the physical device location for
    source adapter XXXXX.XXX.XXXXXXX-V#-C# on the virtual I/O
    server partition <hostname> has failed.
    
    This solution is limited to cases where the specified adapter
    on the source partition is still waiting for its children
    (Virtual Target Devices) to configure, i.e. it has VTDs which
    are in the Defined state and have been in the Defined state
    since the vhost adapter was configured.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Don't fail the lock adapter request just because not all of the
    children have been configured.  Note that there is a time
    period during which the adapter is still "expecting" its
    children to be configured, and any LPM attempt during that time
    (which can be up to an hour after the vhost adapter is
    configured) will fail, by design.  This solution will fix it so
    that LPM attempts made after this time period will work.  (But
    note that VTDs which are in the Defined state are not
    migrated.)
