Subject: Re: HMC and V5R4

I was thinking of 520`s mainly ... and the smaller systems which are
capable of "micro-partitioning".
I think most of these are not CoD-capable.
But anyway, good point .

Careful. HMC IS required on all CUOD capable machines and all 0595s

Yes, Joe,
HMC is not required on a non-LPAR Machine.
There is even an alternative to HMC, if you run i5/OS on the first 
partition and up to four additional LPARs with Linux on them, you can

use Virtual Partition Manager to setup and manage them.

Can I still run single partition machines without an HMC all the way

up to V5R4?  I want to upgrade my little 270 to V5R4 (its last 
supported upgrade) and want to keep it nice and simple with a Twinax
brick for my console.
