Live Partition Mobility

Here's a demo I've done of a 5 min Live LPAR Mobility (think vmotion for POWER LPARs)

Its a running AIX 6.1 LPAR moved on the fly between 2 POWER7 frames: 5mins, not one lost ping!! (longest delay to any ping I got was ~78ms)

remote HMC LPM

(remote HMC - not both frames under the same HMC this time)

CentOS 5.6 get ext4

Centos 5.6 came out recently (not CentOS 6 - RH drip feed this stuff...)

2 points of interest

- ext4 filesystem
- php 5.3

Scripts to web publish HMC managed systems configs

Will work where no ssh trust exists (ie Where you cant run mkauthkeys -u lpar2rrd -a 'ssh-dss ....' as hscroot)
If ssh trust exists then the script does not need the hmccli expect script

Script renders HTML to stdout so just redirect eg ./$0 > index.htm

Here is an expect script hmccli that it can call
