Small nitpicking, you have 1 core license for IBM i but you have all 4
cores activated (yes, there is a difference, you can have the other 3 cores
running Linux or VIOS). What you need to do is to either de-configure 3
processors (not sure how that works, never used the option in the ASMI) or,
the easier way, create a new profile (not a new LPAR, just a profile) with
the resources and the desired CPU then you just activate THAT profile and
set it to default

We bought a 720 with one processor. Of course it comes with four but we
are only licensed for one.

Interesting that our HMC detected the four and selected as default for the
one partition (checkbox) we have to "use all available resources".

The result is that we have one partition with four processors and can't
apply the processor license key (its only for one).

So...............the only way to resolve this (per IBM) is to delete the
partition on the HMC and recreate one that tags all resources except the
three processors we aren't licensed for.

You can't create a shared pool or edit a partition (to change it from 4 to
1) when the "use all resources" checkbox is checked.

Anyone else seen this? Have another workaround?
