How to Determine a Transport Adapter's Instance Number

You need to determine a transport adapter's instance number to ensure that you add and remove the correct transport adapter through the clsetup command. The adapter name is a combination of the type of the adapter and the adapter's instance number.

  1. Based on the slot number, find the adapter's name.

    The following screen is an example and might not reflect your hardware.

    # prtdiag
    …
    ========================= IO Cards =========================
    Bus  Max
    IO  Port Bus      Freq Bus  Dev,
    Type     ID  Side Slot MHz  Freq Func State Name Model
    ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----- --------------------------------
    XYZ   8    B    2    33   33  2,0  ok    xyz11c8,0-xyz11c8,d665.11c8.0.0
    XYZ   8    B    3    33   33  3,0  ok    xyz11c8,0-xyz11c8,d665.11c8.0.0
    …
  2. Using the adapter's path, find the adapter's instance number.

    The following screen is an example and might not reflect your hardware.

    # grep sci /etc/path_to_inst
    "/xyz@1f,400/pci11c8,o@2" 0 "ttt"
    "/xyz@1f,4000.pci11c8,0@4 "ttt"
  3. Using the adapter's name and slot number, find the adapter's instance number.

    The following screen is an example and might not reflect your hardware.

    # prtconf
    …
    xyz, instance #0
    xyz11c8,0, instance #0
    xyz11c8,0, instance #1
    …
