The question for you Hardware Wizards, short of a Unload/Reload is
there a way to get the loadsource off of vSCSI and on to a Physical Controller?
Unless you KNOW the answer, read no further, stop and delete the
message and forget I asked :)
Many Thanks in advance...
Many times in the past I have copied the Loadsource to a larger drive
on small systems where downtime was not an issue ( M-F 8x5 ) type of
shop. I was always swapping out at least the entire loadsource raid
set, so I have just stopped raid5, did my loadsource copy and after
all the other drives were replaced, restarted raid.
I now have the need to migrate a partition from IBM i on IBM i Guest
partition to the guest no longer being a guest. It needs to have its
own disk controllers and disks. All other I/O ( are already that way ).
I found a doc in the V7R1 Info Center on how to do this. Task 3.1
says Ensure that there are enough open disk slots* under the IOA *that
contain the load source 1. disk unit (unit 1).
This sounds like show stopper since my current loadsource is on vSCSI
and the new would be on a real controller.
