ProcedureHow to Unconfigure an IB Port, HCA_SVC, or a VPPA Device

Use the following steps if you want to remove an IB Port, HCA_SVC, or a VPPA device from the system.

The example below illustrates how to unconfigure a VPPA device, but the same procedure applies to Port and HCA_SVC devices as well.

  1. Become superuser.

  2. Unconfigure the IB VPPA device.

    For example:

    # cfgadm -c unconfigure ib::1730000007F51,8001,ipib
    Unconfigure the device: /devices/ib:fabric::1730000007F51,8001,ipib
    This operation will suspend activity on the IB device
    Continue (yes/no)? Y
  3. Verify that the device is disconnected.

    For example:

    # cfgadm -a ib::1730000007F51,8001,ipib
    Ap_Id                       Type    Receptacle Occupant     Condition
    ib::1730000007F51,8001,ipib IB-VPPA connected  unconfigured unknown
