We do have vios, and now that I look, we have an Ethernet adapter in
that vios that is bridged to the same vlan as the two iseries lpars. It
must be doing the sharing for us. I vaguely remember having to order one
extra adapter.

Buck,

If your system is old enough to have the HEA in it, OK, then it can do
all the virtualization for you. If it's a four port adapter assigned to
one partition then you'll need to bridge it to the virtual partitions in
order for that partition to see the network.

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!
