Rob,

You're on the right trail. With POWER6 and POWER7 CECs you can get all the partitions to 'see' the DVD (and often tape too) easily. You don't actually swap it in the traditional sense.

I have one that doesn't. And, when I do the WRKHDWRSC *STG and drill into
it the card does support numerous disk drives so dynamically moving it is
rather problematic.

Orville,
You may have to come up with a different plan. Like copying from physical
media to virtual optical, move that to other lpar and then using that.
