Hi Jack,

Thanks for the response. I was wondering about the controllers with the multiple NWSDs. I'm assuming you're talking about the 290B comms adaptors? At the moment both NWSDs are using the same one, so that may be the issue.

I've created a new server and client SCSI adaptor and changed the second NWSD to use the new 290B controller. It varies on successfully, and even automatically starts the partition. However, when the partition comes up the storage spaces don't seem to be visible as disks. I only see the ones from the first NWSD.

Anything else you can think of that I might be missing?

Not sure on your hardware setup, sounds like you would either want 1 NWSD

and additional storage spaces assigned to it with different sequence numbers

or multiple NWSD's with different controllers and attached storage spaces.

Not sure on the disk size limitations. I am not sure what VIOS would give

you unless you have alternative avenues to disk storage through it like (SAN

etc) other than your current hardware disk limits.
