7. Select Logical hardware resources (buses, IOPs, controllers) from the Hardware Service Manager
display and press Enter. This option allows you to display and work with logical resources. Logical
hardware resources are the functional resources of the system used by the operating system.
With the Logical Hardware Resources display, you can show logical hardware resource status or
information, and associated packaging hardware resources. Use the online Help information to better
understand specific functions, fields, or symbols.

Verifying an installed part by using a Linux system or logical partition

Learn how to verify that the system recognizes a new or replacement part.
To verify the newly installed or replaced part, continue with "Verifying an installed part by using
stand-alone diagnostics."

Verifying an installed part by using stand-alone diagnostics

If you have installed or replaced a part, verify that the system recognizes the new part. You can use
stand-alone diagnostics to verify an installed part in an AIX or Linux system, expansion unit, or logical
v If this server is directly attached to another server or attached to a network, ensure communications
with the other servers have stopped.
v The stand-alone diagnostics require use of all of the logical partition resources. No other activity can be
running on the logical partition.
v The stand-alone diagnostics require access to the system console.
You access these diagnostics from a CD-ROM or from the Network Installation Management (NIM)
server. This procedure describes how to use the diagnostics from a CD-ROM. For information on running
diagnostics from the NIM server, see Running stand-alone diagnostics from a Network Installation
Management server.
To use stand-alone diagnostics, follow these steps:
1. Stop all jobs and applications and then stop the operating system on the system or logical partition.
2. Remove all tapes, diskettes, and CD-ROM.
3. Turn off the system unit power. The next step boots the server or logical partition from the
stand-alone diagnostics CD-ROM. If the optical drive is not available as a boot device on the server
or logical partition on which you are working, follow these steps:
a. Access the ASMI. For information on using the ASMI, see Managing the Advanced System
Management Interface.
b. On the ASMI main menu, click Power/Restart Control.
c. Click Power On/Off System.
d. Select the Service mode boot from default boot list option in the AIX or Linux logical partition
mode boot drop-down menu.
e. Click Save settings and power on. When the optical drive is powered on, insert the stand-alone
diagnostic CD-ROM.
f. Go to step 5.
4. Turn on the system unit power and immediately insert the diagnostics CD-ROM into the optical
5. After the keyboard POST indicator displays on the system console and before the last POST
indicator (speaker) displays, press the numeric 5 key on the system console to indicate that a service
mode boot must be initiated by using the default-service mode boot list.
6. Enter any requested password.
7. At the Diagnostic Operating Instructions display, press Enter.
