Solution

  1. Install latest vmGuestLib patch:
PHSS_43650            HPVM B.06.20 vmGuestLib PATCH
  1. Check/recreate memory device driver file:
# ll /dev/hpvmdynmem
crw-r--r--   1 root       sys        145 0x000000 May 15  2015 /dev/hpvmdynmem

# lsdev | grep -E -e 'hpvmdynmem|145'
      144          -1         hpvmdynmem      pseudo
      145          -1         fcoc_fcp        fcp

The major number of the current device file is wrong (145 instead 144)

Querying the memory driver will not work:

# cat < /dev/hpvmdynmem
sh: /dev/hpvmdynmem: Cannot find or open the file.

So we recreate the device file with the right major number:

# rm /dev/hpvmdynmem
# mknod /dev/hpvmdynmem c 144 0
# ll /dev/hpvmdynmem           
crw-r--r--   1 root       sys        144 0x000000 May 25 11:42 /dev/hpvmdynmem

Now querying the memory driver works again:

# cat </dev/hpvmdynmem
