7.6.5. Removing Logical SR-IOV Ports
If a logical SR-IOV port is no longer required, it can of course also be removed again. However, the associated ent device may no longer be used in the operating system!
As an example we remove the logical port for ent2 again. If an IP address should still be configured, the standard interface en2 can be removed with the ifconfig command:
aix22 # ifconfig en2 detach
Then the Ethernet adapter ent2 can be removed from the operating system:
aix22 # rmdev -Rdl ent2
Now the associated logical port can be removed using the command “lpar rmsriov“:
$ lpar rmsriov aix22 2700c003
In addition to the LPAR, the ID of the logical port must be specified as an argument.
