Look in the "file system limitations". Unless I am reading it wrong,
they're a lot smaller.
Now "bringing it down" may be up to the beholder. For example if you bust
the limits does that throw up an src for that lpar on the hmc or does it
just blow up every program that tries to list out a directory listing? If
your job is where the only thing you do is handle stream file entries is
there a difference (no)? Just like in an ERP platform does accidentally
deleting your item master "bring the system down"? As an IBM i
administrator you may not think so but there may be several users
scattered in plants around the world who may not think there's a
difference. Last example: if I lost all telnet capability would it
matter? Not on my domino lpars. However I have a few hundred users on my
ERP lpar which may think "the system's down".
