I am using BRMS for our full system backups and use the option in BRMS to IPL the system upon completion. Does the unattended IPL with restart shut down both LPARs gracefully and restart them normally? Our startup program was not modified when the additional partition was set up.

    What problem are you having? And please include an explanation of what "Software: BRMS" has to do with any unattended IPL. -- Tom

    An LPAR can be IPLed independently of any other LPARs.

    I realize they can be IPLed independently. My question is when BRMS is configured to IPL the system (all partitions) after the full system backup completes does it shut down all partitions normally during the IPL process?

    My experience is this:

    When you shutdown the primary LPAR, ALL other partitions will be shut down.

    The unattended IPL only brings up the main partition

    I've IPLed the primary partition without it affecting the secondary partition.  But we're not using BRMS so I couldn't say what would happen if we were.
