If your guest LPAR doesn't have an Ethernet adapter, and you opt not to use virtual Ethernet bridge, what other option are you using to give Ethernet to the guest LPAR?
I have a similar config, where the I have a guest LPAR, V7R1.
Guest owns no hardware, everything is virtual.
Only option I was aware of was to use a virtual Ethernet bridge from the host.

Great point! My thoughts were simple, as they tend to be. I don't have a 4-port adapter I can dedicate to the guest LPAR; the TCP/IP traffic will be low; I don't need to pester the infrastructure people for an IP address, a rule in the external routing configuration, a slot in the patch bay...
Haha, I thought I was taking the easy road!
