Actually, it did a dual IPL last Saturday when I applied MF99005. I was

Actually, it will go up and down several times both in LIC and the OS.
Unless your watching it, you won't really notice.
From the end user standpoint it's a single event, down and back.

This is interesting.
MF56173 applied permanently.
MF99005 applied permanently.
SF99707 level 4 installed.
SF99707 level 5 apply at next IPL.
Single LPAR, 1 processor.
Wonder what's going to happen when I IPL . . .
