Reconfigure RSCT ID to fix DLPAR issues on cloned AIX systems

ON AIX systems, RMC daemons are part of the Reliable, Scalable Cluster Technology (RSCT). They allows the HMC to communicate with a managed logical partition to do DLPAR operations. But, when we clone an AIX system, for example using mksysb, RSCT ID is not reconfigured and of course, DLPAR is not working anymor.

To solve thsi issue, you need to reconfigure RSCT ID. FOllwo this steps to fix this issue.

1- Get RSCT ID (before change it).

1
2
[root@aix:/] cat /etc/ct_node_id
250083fc821083e6

2- Reconfigure RSCT ID on AIX client.

1
2
[root@aix:/] /usr/sbin/rsct/install/bin/uncfgct -n
[root@aix:/] /usr/sbin/rsct/install/bin/cfgct

3- Verify RSCT ID (after change it)

1
2
[root@aix:/] cat /etc/ct_node_id
bfcc4535bc55378

4- Restart RMC on AIX client.

2
3
[root@aix:/] /usr/sbin/rsct/bin/rmcctrl -z
[root@aix:/] /usr/sbin/rsct/bin/rmcctrl -A
[root@aix:/] /usr/sbin/rsct/bin/rmcctrl -p

5- Wait 5 min and check again RMC connection between HMC or FSM.

5- From AIX, check conenction wirh HMC/FSM.
