Good day,
We have 9406-825 machine and there's two(2) 5094 expansion unit (One for DEV and the other for PROD). When I changed the cache battery for DEV partition, I power down the partition, but the PROD partition also power down. What would be the possible problem of our machine? Does anyone knows how to solve the problem? It's the first time to happen it here. Before it was working properly, and when I down the other partition nothing happens to the other one. Please help me.
 Thanks,
Randy

    In a partitioned system environment, IPL becomes a matter that requires some caution. Although each partition IPLs as an independent system, you must use caution when the primary partition is being worked with. When the primary partition is powered on, if a secondary partition was configured with a System IPL Action of IPL, the primary partition signals the secondary partition to start the IPL. The IPLs of all secondary partitions are 
    started at the same time and run concurrently. Similarly, if the primary is powered down, all secondary partitions must be powered down first to prevent abnormal terminations. The 
    sequence should be to power down all secondary partitions prior to taking the primary down.

    Yes of course, but I was trying to say is that my system has 2 partition which is DEV and PROD. Given that, I already had my primary partition where I am controlling both partitions. I never do anything in the primary partition except of powering up and down my two partitions. Hope you understand my problem Sir Ricky1234. Thank you so much!
