First shutdown the partition you wish to remove.
Next use DLPAR to add the RAID IOA (and IOP if required) to the
partition that is getting the disk.
Next use Service tools or System i Access to add AND BALANCE the disk to
the partition. If they were RAID protected already on the old partition
they will still be RAID protected on the new partition.

Now you have more disk.... and a landmine!! You MUST remember to Either
update the profile for the partition to include the new hardware as
required OR save a copy of the current partition configuration and set
that profile as the default profile. If you fail to do both of these the
nex time you cold start the partition it will be missing a bunch of

Also for cleanup purposes delete the old partition and it's profiles so
you don't attempt to start it again.
