When running vpmon/vpar virtualization, any changes made to the vpar database vpardb are automatically saved to:


In fact you can boot vpmon of a disk, stand up the vpars, and reven remove the original vpmon system and boot disk and the database will maintain integrity on the remaining systems.

To sync/verify the vpardb

vparstatus -D /stand/vpdb

vparstatus -m

Console path:  No path as console is virtual
Monitor boot disk path:
Monitor boot filename:  /stand/vpmon
Database filename:  /stand/vpdb
Memory ranges used:  0x0/349069312 monitor
0x14ce6000/327680 firmware
0x14d36000/417792 monitor
0x14d9c000/925696 firmware
0x14e7e000/1417216 monitor
0x14fd8000/50495488 firmware
