Automatic Locking of a Compute Pool

After the first successful deployment of any server in a compute pool, the compute pool is automatically locked. When a compute pool is locked, the associated device configuration template and the virtual I/O pool are also locked. A lock icon Lock icon is displayed in the user interface to indicate that the resource is locked. Locking of the compute pool ensures that all servers in the pool utilize the same device configuration template and virtual I/O pool. You can only perform the following on a locked compute pool:
  • View the definitions of the compute pool
  • Add or remove servers from the compute pool
  • Deploy servers that are members of the compute pool
  • NOTE: If you want to use a locked device configuration template for other purposes, you can clone and use the device configuration template.
