ibm.com/eserver/iseriesNotes: iSeries ODBC Driver for LinuxThe iSeries ODBC Driver for Linux allows you to access iSeries database data from a Linux application written to the ODBC API. It is based on theODBC driver in the Client Access Express for Windows product. As in that driver, the Linux ODBC driver uses the iSeries database Host Servers asthe access point to the system, using a socket connection. The iSeries ODBC Driver for Linux is an ODBC 3.5 ANSI driver with the ability to store andprocess UNICODE data.Two versions of the driver existfor Linux running in an iSeries LPAR.for Intel-based Linux workstations.The iSeries ODBC Driver for Linux is a no charge iSeries licensed program -- 5733-LO1 and is available only as a web download.8 2002 IBM Corporation

ibm.com/eserver/iseriesNotes: Linux Partition Management EnhancementsDynamic Processor Movement for LinuxWe can only do dynamic allocation of virtual processor units. We can't change the amount of memory that Linux has dynamically. The memory of aLinux partition can be changed, but that would require the Linux partition to be restarted. The dynamic movement of processor capacity can be donewith dedicated processors or processor units. Either way, the primary partition has to be at V5R2 to utilize this function.Up to 10 Linux partitions per processorV5R2 now supports up to 4 OS/400 partitions per processor with a total of up to 10 partitions per processor. That is, a single processors can supportup to 10 Linux partitions. You can use combinations of OS/400 and Linux partitions per processors. 10 times the number of processors, minus thenumber of OS/400 partitions, equal the number of Linux partitions allowed. Maximum of 32 partitions on a system, with up to 31 being Linuxpartitions.iSeries NavigatorMany new enhancements where made to iSeries Navigator (formally known as Operations Navigator). The changes that are beneficial for LinuxPartition Management are:Create Partition WizardCreate, Delete PartitionsMove Processor ResourcesNew view for Memory and processing powerNew Recovery options to save/restore LPAR configurations to/from a PC file8 2002 IBM Corporation

ibm.com/eserver/iseriesNotes: Linux I/ODirect I/O With directly attached I/O, Linux manages the hardware resources directly and all I/O resources are under the control of the Linuxoperating system. You can allocate disk units, tape devices, optical devices, and LAN adapters to a guest partition running Linux.You must have an NWSD to install Linux in a guest partition. Once Linux is installed, you can configure the partition to start independently.For directly attached hardware, all failure and diagnostic messages will be displayed within the guest partition.Virtual I/O Virtual I/O resources are devices owned by the hosting OS/400 partition that provide I/O function to the guest partition. The iSeries Linuxkernel and OS/400 support several different kinds of virtual I/O resources. They are virtual console, virtual disk unit, virtual CD, virtual tape, andvirtual Ethernet.Virtual console provides console function for the guest partition through an OS/400 partition.The virtual console can be established to the hosting partition or to the primary partition. The use of the virtual console allows the installationprogram to communicate with the user prior to networking resources being configured. It can also be used for troubleshooting system errors.Virtual disk unit can only be provided by a hosting partition.Virtual DASD provides access to NWSSTG virtual disks from Linux. By default, the CRTNWSSTG command creates a disk environment withone disk partition formatted with the FAT16 file system. The Linux installation program will reformat the disk for Linux or you can use Linuxcommands such as fdisk and mke2fs to format the disk for Linux.Virtual CD is needed to support the installation of Linux and is only provided by a hosting partition.By default, a Linux partition can see all CD drives on the hosted partition. You can change an option on the NWSD to restrict Linux fromaccessing some or all of those drives. See Create a network server description and network server storage space for more information onchanging NWSD attributes.Virtual tape provides access to the OS/400 tape drives from a guest partition.By default, a guest partition can see all tape drives on the hosted partition. You can change an option on the NWSD to restrict Linux fromaccessing some or all of those drives. See Create a network server description and network server storage space for more information onchanging NWSD attributes.Virtual Ethernet provides the same function as using a 1 Gigabyte (GB) Ethernet adapter.A guest partition can use virtual Ethernet to establish multiple high speed inter-partition connections. OS/400 and Linux partitions cancommunicate with each other using TCP/IP over the virtual Ethernet communication ports. Refer to Use virtual Ethernet in a guest partition formore information on virtual Ethernet.8 2002 IBM Corporation

ibm.com/eserver/iseriesNotes: V5R2 Direct Attachments for LINUXA number of new direct attachment features for Linux are available with V5R2. Cards being controlled by the Linux operating system do notuse/require PCI IOPs. Linux direct attach PCI cards are supported only in a secondary LPAR partition. The existing direct attachments for Linux withV5R1 were limited to features #0607, #0601 and #0602 100/10Mb Ethernet and 1Gb Ethernet adapters, #0603 100/10Mb Token Ring adapter and the#0604, #0605 and #0606 Disk adapters. The addition of the direct attachment features mentioned in this foil largely extend the possibilities to directlyaddress more different devices directly from a Linux partition on the iSeries server.8 2002 IBM Corporation

ibm.com/eserver/iseriesShared read-only virtual disk"Shared read-only virtual disks" is support for creating a single virtual disk and having it used by multiple Linux partitions at the same time. A typicalcase would be to install Linux once, and then split the data into read-only (programs, etc.) and write capable (configuration files, home directories, etc.)A single copy of the read-only disk can then be used by several Linux partitions at the same time.8 2002 IBM Corporation

ibm.com/eserver/iseriesNotes: Shared read-only virtual disk - detailsOn the ADDNWSSTGL (Add Server Storage Link) command, the parameter ACCESS has 2 possible settings in V5R1: *UPDATE and *READ.In V5R2, ACCESS has the new value *SHRUPD.ACCESS (*READ)The functionality of the *READ setting was expanded between V5R1 and V5R2:In V5R1, *READ guaranteed read-only access to a NWSSTG from the linked NWSD. However, it only allowed a single NWSD to be linked;attempted links past the first would fail, saying that the maximum links were already filled.In V5R2, *READ guarantees read-only access but also allows multiple NWSDs to be simultaneously linked. Then, all of the linked NWSDswill be able to access the NWSSTG in a read-only manner, and none will have read-write access.ACCESS(*SHRUPD)For the shared read-write access in V5R2 available with V5R2:Using an ACCESS setting of *SHRUPD, one can link an NWSSTG to multiple NWSDs in the same way as *READ above.Then, any individual linked NWSD can access the NWSSTG read-write, but only if none of the others is currently accessing it in any way. That is, aread or write requires a Mount - read/write - Unmount sequence .If no NWSD is currently accessing the disk read-write, then any or all of the NWSDs can simultaneously access the NWSSTG read-only.Additional V5R2 drive sequence number (DRVSEQNBR) values:*QR: This special value is used for linking the quorum disk for a Windows cluster support (new with V5R2). It is not valid when using Linux.Addition al drive values (19-64): If the network server type is *GUEST, a value between 1 and 64 may be specified. Otherwise, the valuessupported here are up to 18 and apply only to a Windows Server of type *WINDOWSNT (Windows NT).See the on-line help for the ADDNWSSTGL command for additional parameter value inter dependencies.8 2002 IBM Corporation
