Problem description
Since upgrading from 2.6.1.. to 2.7.2, we can no longer run chvm to assign adapter slots to the correct octants. Unfortunately we had some bad h/w and the assignment of 2 slots reverted to octant1 - this means we are unable to get the SAS adapters assigned to a storage node and thus cannot run benchmarks, etc for post upgrades. We need to be able to assign these slots ASAP.

The CEC is at standby with no octants activated. I have tried this on several CECs and also a different cluster - same problem.

This is the command and output:

> cat s2a12.res | chvm s2a121-hf0,s2a122-hf0,s2a123-hf0,s2a124-hf0,

s2a125-hf0,s2a126-hf0,s2a127-hf0,s2a12s-m,s2a12u-hf0

s2a12: It doesn't have the FSPs or BPAs whose side is the value as
specified or by default.

Efix is attached below:

copy and save the orginal /opt/xcat/lib/perl/xCAT/FSPvm.pm
copy attached FSPvm.pm attached below to /opt/xcat/lib/perl/xCAT/FSPvm.pm
restart xcatd daemon

    I had checked in code with svn revision 13229 for branches and 13230 for trunk.
