That I believe is your issue, only 1 nwsd per 290B I am pretty sure and then
your other issue with how much you can allocate and assign.

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

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

etc) other than your current hardware disk limits.
