This came about, at least in part, through the requirements process of COMMON and the COMMON Americas Advisory Council.

IBM do listen to us.

Anyone notice this about minimum load source source size for guest
partitions hosted by IBM i?

Starting with IBM i 7.2 TR1, the minimum loadsource requirements have
changed for external and virtual loadsource LUNs, and fixed issues with
RAIDed Native-attached SAS drives. The minimum loadsource sizes are
listed below:

Minimum of 35 GB for 520-byte sectors (DS8000, virtual disks with VIOS
as server)
Minimum of 40 GB (to get 35 GB useable space) for 512-byte sectors
(SVC, Storwize, virtual disks with VIOS VSCSI or IBM i as server)
Minimum of 70 GB for Native-attached SAS/SCSI (Both 520-byte or 4K

That's a big help from the previous 75-80 (to get 70 GB useable space)
