2.1.Partition Function

The base module of this system has the partition function which enables the system to operate as if multiple units are present on one unit.

The system is capable of partitioning in units of the cell or I/O module within the same base module. For example, in a system consisting of four cells and three I/O modules, partitioning shown in Figure 2-2 is possible.

Note that each partition should contain at least one cell card and one I/O module (including the core module).

The partition structure in the base module can be changed with the “hc” command of the SP command. (For details of the SP command, see 2.4.6 SP Command Reference.)
