Can you do some really weird stuff that is almost like iasp?
For example,
You have an lpar called HOST.
It hosts two lpars called PRIMARY and BACKUP.
HOST has these network storage spaces: PRIMARY, BACKUP, STG01, STG02,
STG03, STG04...
You have two network storage devices: PRIMARY, BACKUP.
PRIMARY contains these storage spaces: PRIMARY, STG01, STG02...
BACKUP contains these storage spaces: BACKUP, STG01, STG02...
You just keep OS and whatnot on the first storage space for each guest.
You create ASP's that contain the other storage spaces. (If this step is
Start up PRIMARY do some work. Shut it down.
Start up BACKUP do some work. Shut it down.

I realize that this is now IBM i and not your father's old AS/400 so
you'll have things like this Domino configuration file:

and WAS files and other whatnot that may also have lpar specific
