Hi Paul

that changed in October.

"The Power S822 is enhanced with the ability to run IBM i with special
terms and conditions. The new offering provides support for a very
space-efficient footprint for IBM i clients with partitions of two or fewer
cores using virtual I/O at a P10 software tier. Firmware 840 or later is
required."

Of course, happy for someone to correct my understanding.

Have you looked at the S822 at all ? I understand that is now available in
P10 tier with certain restrictions (2 Procmaximum per LPAR)

Anyone have experience with Processor and User Entitlement Transfers.
I'd like to transfer from a Power 740 , 8205-E6C (Group1-P20)) to a
Power
S814 8286-41A 6 core (Group5-P10).
I'm finding there are extra costs involved, items will not transfer,
and new Entitlements would need to be purchased.

So instead, I'll probably opt to transfer from a Power 740 , 8205-E6C
(Group1-P20)) to a Power S824 8286-42A 6 core (Group1-P20).

Thank You
