Overview

The online vPar migration capability enables an administrator to move a running vPar, its OS, and its applications to an identical VSP system without service interruption. While the vPar is moved from one VSP to another, the guest OS and all its applications remain active, without requiring an OS reboot or application restart. There is a minimal amount of time (depending on size of guest and other parameters) in which I/O activity and CPU execution is frozen (quiescent) for the vPar, but it is never shutdown during the migration process.
 
The capability to perform online migration has been available for Integrity VMs (shared guests) since the release of Integrity VM v4.1; however, the physical and isolated nature of vPars has imposed restrictions on vPar migration capabilities. With the HP-UX 11iv3 March 2016 update, modifications to the OS kernel and hypervisor will pre-enable online migration of a vPar; later planned patches to HP-UX11iv3 will enable the online migration feature. This will allow customers to have the same benefits of flexibility and availability that has been available with Integrity VMs.

For the most up-to-date information about VSP and vPar requirements, restrictions, limitations and installation instructions, see the latest HP-UX vPars and Integrity VM v6.x Administrator Guide at Manuals for HP-UX vPars and Integrity VM v6 - Hewlett Packard Enterprise Support Center.
