I don't have an answer for you, but at my last employer, we had the same
issue. The system operated fine, but we were constantly seeing licensing
messages in the history log. Our BP and IBM gave us a number of possible
solutions, but none resolved the issue.
The issue went away because we upgraded to a new Power 7 to replace the old

Subject: HMC system detection defaults to all resources
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?
