Re: Guest Partition OS Requirements on Power8



fixed

Rob, I was told that you cannot have VIOS and I on I with SAN using FC.
Rob, why can't you use 7.1 TR7?? I have this in use with VIOS. That list
tidbit on 6.1.1 is good to know, I had not heard that one.

Jack,

You're guessing. Kirk was hoping for something slightly more definitive
than that. To begin with, 7.1TR8 not 7.1TR7.

Guest of a guest?

I have vios.
vios is guesting fiber tape controller to four lpars of IBM i
vios is also guesting ethernet to four lpars of IBM i
One of those lpars of IBM i is also guesting the disk for the other three
lpars of IBM i.

Back to Kirk,

IBM does not support 6.1.1 as an lpar, guested or otherwise on Power 8.
Even if you were able to get it running good luck on trying to get ANY
call helped by IBM.

Kirk, with VIOS you can't do a guest of a guest that is what I have been
told. So I am thinking you would have VIOS and 7.2 or VIOS with 7.1 TR7
or
higher.

I know the official line is Power8 means 7.1 with TR8 or 7.2. But on the
off chance there might a 'but you can answer'..

If I use either VIOS, IBM 7.1 with TR8 or 7.2 has the Host, is there
anyway
in hell will IBM support running a 6.1.1 Guest partition?

I had to ask
