Verifying a part by using the operating system or VIOS

If you installed a new feature or replaced a part, you might want to use the tools in the operating system
or Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) to verify that the feature or part is recognized by the system or logical
partition.
Verifying an installed feature or replaced part by using an AIX system or logical
partition
If you installed feature or replaced a part, you might want to use the tools in the AIX operating system to
verify that the feature or part is recognized by the system or logical partition.

Verifying an installed feature by using the AIX operating system:

If you installed feature or replaced a part, you might want to use the tools in the AIX operating system to
verify that the feature or part is recognized by the system or logical partition.
To verify the installed feature by using the AIX operating system, complete the following steps:
1. Log in as root user.
2. At the command line, type diag and press Enter.
3. Select Advanced Diagnostics Routines and press Enter.
4. From the Diagnostic Mode Selection menu, select System Verification and press Enter.
5. When the Advanced Diagnostic Selection menu appears, select one of the following options:
v To test a single resource, select the resource that you installed from the list of resources and press
Enter.
v To test all the resources available to the operating system, select All Resources and press Enter.
6. Select Commit, and wait until the diagnostic programs run to completion, responding to any prompts
that appear.
7. Did the diagnostics run to completion and display the message No trouble was found?
v No: If a service request number (SRN) or other reference code is displayed, suspect a loose adapter
or cable connection. Review the installation procedures to ensure that the new feature is installed
correctly. If you cannot correct the problem, collect all SRNs or any other reference code
information that you see. If the system is running in logical partitioning (LPAR) mode, note the
logical partition in which you installed the feature. Contact your service provider for assistance.
v Yes: The new device is installed correctly. Exit the diagnostic programs and return the system to
normal operations.

Verifying a replaced part by using the AIX operating system:

If you replaced a part, you might want to use the tools in the AIX operating system to verify that the part
is recognized by the system or logical partition.
To verify the operation of a replacement part, complete the following steps:
1. Did you use either the AIX operating system or the online diagnostics service aid concurrent
(hot-swap) service to replace the part?
No: Go to step 2.
Yes: Go to step 5 on page 23.
2. Is the system powered off?
No: Go to step 4 on page 23.
Yes: Continue with the next step.
3. Start the system and wait until the AIX operating system login prompt is displayed or until apparent
system activity on the operator panel or display has stopped.
Did the AIX login prompt display?
