I think the problem lies in the fact that it is owned by the internal base
disk controller and that probably has disks on it, I believe for NON-Guest
partitions, it wil; need to be on a controller you can move.

I have a DVD drive in the CEC I want to share between partitions. Most of

stick the dvd in and both the host and all it's guests show the message in
qsysopr that the volume is now in OPT01.
All lpars are at 6.1.1 or 7.1 and the hmc is running 7.7.1SP1. 8203-E4A
