I believe Dr Franken mentioned that only the SAS drives support that
reformatting option (haven't had the time to try yet).

Then you will need to reformat the drives as Roberto suggests. That
may not
be possible depending on how old the firmware is on the disk units. At
one
time there was a block to reformatting AIX drives to IBM i standards since
they were so much cheaper than the IBM i formatted drives. Same way visa
versa.

Hi, Jerry:

Does this "spare 520" have IBM i (i5/OS) installed and running on it
already? If so, it should be possible to use Operations Navigator or
STRSST to create a second partition and then load and run Linux in
that LPAR ...

Or, are you talking about trying to load Linux on "the bare machine"?
