When using NPIV, VIOS gives each virtual FC adapter 2 ids (and they are
fixed) to be able to work with partition mobility, so be carefull you don't
run out of alloted ids or worse, that you have more ids than your switch
allows you to use (replace ID with either WWN or WWPN i can't remember
which is which right now).

Best Regards,

I take it when you virtualize multiple lpars off of one fiber tape card
it's not hard to give each lpar it's own WWPN, right? It's kind of a
zoning question. At one location our AIX/TSM lpar will only be allowed to
use 5 drives and our 5 lpars of IBM i will all have to share the remaining
5 drives. When they all had their own card it wasn't too hard to do port
mapping. We're switching over to WWPN mapping.
