Abstract
(EN)
Migrating a logical partition (LPAR) from a first physical port to a first target physical port, includes determining a configuration of an LPAR having allocated resources residing on a computer and assigned to the first physical port of the computer. The configuration includes a label that specifies a network topology that is provided by the first physical port and the first target physical port has a port label that matches the label included in the configuration of the LPAR. The first target physical port with available capacity to service the LPAR is identified and the LPAR is migrated from the first physical port to the target physical port by reassigning the LPAR to the first target physical port.

L'invention concerne la migration d'un partitionnement logique (LPAR) d'un premier port physique vers un premier port physique cible, et consiste à déterminer une configuration d'un LPAR ayant des ressources allouées résidant sur un ordinateur et attribué au premier port physique de l'ordinateur. La configuration comprend une étiquette qui spécifie une topologie de réseau qui est fournie par le premier port physique et le premier port physique cible comprend une étiquette de port qui correspond à l'étiquette comprise dans la configuration du LPAR. Le premier port physique cible qui présente une capacité disponible pour desservir le LPAR est identifié et le LPAR est migré du premier port physique vers le port physique cible par la réattribution du LPAR au premier port physique cible.
