Anyone remember where the documentation is on how to create a guested
lpar? I've got something in mind but I don't want to speculate much
further...

Rob,

He is going to do a Save to Virtual tape, FTP the
images
to the new
machine (with factory installed i5/OS on it), and dup the images to the
LTO-4 tape. Then he will do a D-mode IPL from that newly created tape
which
will work fine. You are right that you can't restore LIC from Virtual
tape,
but that wasn't his plan.

See note 4 of

urza

iu102.htm

And I did some serious browsing of the restore instructions.

I just don't think you can restore either LIC or OS from virtual tape.
Your best bet is the DUPTAP.
