Capacity Expansion from 9016-16P to 9032-32P

Capacity Expansion from 9016-16P to 9032-32P

Procedure

  1. Log in to the CMC WebUI. On the menu bar, choose Overview. On the Overview tab page, view the product model in the Product Info area. Check that Model is 9016-16P, as shown in Figure 8-6.
    Figure 8-6 Product Info

  2. Power off the server and ensure that all SCEs and the CME are powered off. For details, see Powering On and Off the 9016.
  3. Install SCE 3 and SCE 4 based on site requirements. For details, see Installing an SCE and Installing a CME. Connect NI cables to each SCE, and connect SCEs to be added to the CME using PIP cables. For details, see Installing and Removing Cables.
  4. After the hardware configuration is complete, power on the server. Ensure that SCEs are powered on before the CME is powered on so that the CME can detect correct hardware configurations during system initialization. After the server is powered on, wait for about 10 minutes until the system initialization is complete, and then proceed with the next step.
  5. After the CMC is started, log in to the CMC WebUI as an administrator, enter the user name and password, and click Log In. A dialog box is displayed, asking you whether to change the product configuration, as shown in Figure 8-7.

  6. Click Cancel. The home page is displayed. Choose System Management on the menu bar and then Firmware Upgrade > SCE Upgrade in the navigation tree. The SCE Upgrade page is displayed, as shown in Figure 8-8.
    Figure 8-8 SCE Upgrade page

  7. On the menu bar, choose Overview. Click the Current Alarms tab to view the alarms. Ensure that no software version inconsistency alarms, physical partition mode and product model mismatch alarms, or BMC offline alarms are generated. For details about how to handle alarms, see the KunLun Mission Critical Server V100R001 CMC Alarm Handling.
  8. Click Logout at the upper right corner of the WebUI. The login page is displayed.
  9. Log in to the CMC WebUI as an administrator, enter the user name and password, and click Log In. A dialog box is displayed, asking you whether to change the product configuration, as shown inFigure 8-9.

Single physical partition mode before capacity expansion

  • If the physical partition mode is 16P and the CPU platform of the node to be added is the same as that of the original system, click OK. The System Capacity Expansion dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 8-10.
    Figure 8-10 System capacity expansion dialog box in a single physical partition scenario

  1. Select Yes and click OK. The single physical partition capacity expansion starts. The new node is added to the current system, the physical partition mode is changed to 32P, and the original physical partition configuration information is retained.
  2. Select No and click OK. The non-single physical partition capacity expansion starts. By default, 4-socket physical partitions will be created on the new node, but the new node is not added to the current system. The physical partition mode is changed to 16P+4 x 4P, and the configuration information of the original 16P physical partition remains unchanged.
    • If the CPU platform of the node to be added is different from that of the original system, click OK in the dialog box shown in Figure 8-9. A dialog box is displayed, indicating that the CPU platforms are inconsistent, as shown in Figure 8-11. By default, 4-socket physical partitions will be created on the new node, the physical partition mode is changed to 16P + 4 x 4P, and the configuration information of the original 2 x 8P physical partitions remains unchanged.

Non-single physical partition mode before capacity expansion

If the physical partition mode is a non-single physical partition mode, for example, 2 x 8P, click OK. A dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 8-12.

Click OK. By default, 4-socket physical partitions will be created on the new node, the physical partition mode is changed to 2 x 8P + 4 x 4P, and the configuration information of the original 2 x 8P physical partitions remains unchanged.

  1. Click OK. A dialog box is displayed, showing "The capacity expansion takes some time. Please wait."

    Wait for about 5 to 10 seconds. The home page is displayed.

  2. On the menu bar, choose Overview. On the Overview tab page, view the product model in the Product Info area. Check that Model is 9032-32P, as shown in Figure 8-14.
    Figure 8-14 Viewing the product model after capacity expansion

  3. Choose Partition Management on the menu bar and then KPAR in the navigation tree. On the displayed KPAR page, check whether the physical partition mode matches the product model.
  4. On the menu bar, choose Overview. Click the Current Alarms tab to check that the product model and system configuration mismatch alarm is cleared.
NOTE:

After the capacity expansion is successful, some original alarms on the alarm page are not cleared immediately. This is a normal phenomenon. Wait for about 1 minute and the alarms will be automatically cleared. Wait until the alarms are cleared and proceed with other operations.

All operations of expanding the capacity from 9016-16P to 9032-32P are complete now.
