LTC4863-Dummy.o module not built into rhel3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:58 EST
The following has be reported by IBM LTC:
Dummy.o module not built into rhel3 release
31/64 bit rhel builds guests under VM
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insmod dummy
2. ifconfig dummy0 [vipa address]
3. echo add_vipa4 [hex version of ip address]:[interface1] > /proc/qeth_ipa_takeover
4. echo add_vipa4 [hex version of ip address]:[interface2] > /proc/qeth_ipa_takeover
insmod: dummy: no module by that name found
ifconfig dummy0 126.96.36.199
dummy0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00
inet addr:188.8.131.52 Bcast:184.108.40.206 Mask:255.255.0.0
inet6 addr: fe80::200:ff:fe00:0/64 Scope:Link

We need a not-real interface to put the vipa address on, which typically is done
through a dummy network interface. This is required to do source vipa, as two
additional osa cards will be configured with that vipa address.
Also, the qethconf command, which can be used to query the chpids and retrieve
their configured vipas in decimal is not included.
Pete: it appears s390 explicitly disables dummy in the config... do you remember
why that override is in ?
I was always like that and not a regression against our Mach1 product.
I think it was inherited that way from the port made by Huntsville group.
I see no problem in turning this into FZ request or RFE and expediting it.
