Curious, how you doing your save/restore.
Save 21 / Restore 21.
Both my P5 to P7 migrations had issues back in 2012.
Most was IFS related, because some IFS items were marked not be saved, which in turn caused LPP to fail.
Make sure you have everything saved.
Good luck.
Your brave doing 2 in one night at the same time.
I wrote a little utility to pull any errors from the 10,000 to 20,000 migration joblog.
I can send you the code if interested.

Subject: booting from DVD.

Two lpar migrations.
Save/restore from P6 to P8.
Both guested. DVD to VIOS. Disk to IBM i.
One DVD.
Saves will start tonight.
I can boot one lpar to DVD just fine. Once you've booted into DST does it need to read the DVD again to take various DST menu options? Or is it done reading the DVD and loaded all of DST into memory? IOW, can I go ahead and boot the second lpar now, after reassigning the DVD to it? I'm thinking, no.
