MFPart node

An MFPart node represents a mainframe OSI either as a native LPAR running zOS, or a zVM-supported VM running zOS.

MFPart node lifecycle

The following section describes the scenarios in which an MFPart node is created, updated, or removed.

Creation and update

MFPart nodes are created and updated in exactly the same way as Host nodes.

Removal

MFPart nodes are removed in exactly the same way as Host nodes.

An MFPart node is also destroyed when its parent mainframe is destroyed. This is a Containment Removal type because an MFPart cannot exist without its mainframe host. See Containment Removal. For information about the destruction of Host nodes, see Host node lifecycle.
