CSM has a "HWControlNodeId" field which corresponds to the lpar "name" in the HMC. To maintain consitancy with CSM, it would be beneifical if xCAT development could add a table entry for the HWControlNodeID which matches the LPAR "name" in the HMC. As a workaround, we put the lpar "name" in the "comments" field of the "nodelist" table. We chose the "comments" fields to avoid xCAT's control/use of other/similar fields. We had a prior meeting with IBM about this. We would hope that in the future xCAT table/fields would better match the CSM fields since CSM more closely aligns itself to the HMC environment. In particular we would like to see the field above added to xCAT tables.
