IBM teams also are working with customers and software developers worldwide to help determine how system administrators can best take advantage of these advances.

However, before implementing LPAR, some basic planning is required. Each CPU can be individually assigned to a logical partition.

A partition must have at least one CPU. Memory can be assigned in increments of MB, with a minimum of 1 GB per partition.


Because the system uses some of the partitions’ memory for LPAR management and overhead, it’s important to consult and follow IBM’s published guidelines when defining partitions. Partitions are defined and managed from a locally attached graphical workstation lpae the hardware management console HMC.

What is LPAR? Webopedia Definition

The HMC, which is connected to one or more systems, is used to create, modify, activate and shutdown partitions. It also can display the virtual operator panel and session terminal for each partition, while detecting, reporting and storing changes in hardware conditions.

Systems resources can be assigned to any partition, and administrators can specify whether a resource is required for booting, or lar it’s simply desired meaning it will be used if available. Accordingly, if system resources e.

Administrators can easily see which resources have been assigned to running partitions.
