Ok, ignoring the NFS stuff, image catalog, etc for now.
Concentrating on the vlan first. I know I will have to vary stuff off on
the guests when it comes time to use the service adapter.

On the RACK2 Power 8 I have a second VSwitch set up, ETHERNET1. It has
one vlan, 206.
Virtual network management shows this and that there's two partitions
trying to use this.

Starting out with two lpars on RACK2.
RACK2HST is the hosting lpar.
GDISYS2 is one of our guests.
Both of these lpars have a virtual ethernet adapter id (4), using virtual
switch ETHERNET1, and vlan 206.
Both of these show CMN05 was created when looking at WRKHDWRSC *CMN.

I ran the following on both lpars:
ADDTCPHTE INTNETADR('10.10.206.181') HOSTNAME((RACK2HSTVLAN))
ADDTCPHTE INTNETADR('10.10.206.129') HOSTNAME((GDISYS2VLAN))
CRTLINETH LIND(VRTETH) RSRCNAME(CMN05) ONLINE(*NO) LINESPEED(*AUTO)
DUPLEX(*AUTO)
VRYCFG CFGOBJ(VRTETH) CFGTYPE(*LIN) STATUS(*ON)
WRKCFGSTS *LIN VRTETH shows
Description Status
VRTETH ACTIVE
VRTETNET ACTIVE
VRTETTCP ACTIVE

I ran this on RACK2HST:
ADDTCPIFC INTNETADR('10.10.206.181') LIND(VRTETH 206)
SUBNETMASK('255.255.255.0') MTU(1496)
STRTCPIFC INTNETADR('10.10.206.181')
NETSTAT *IFC shows the interface as active.

And this on GDISYS2:
ADDTCPIFC INTNETADR('10.10.206.129') LIND(VRTETH 206)
SUBNETMASK('255.255.255.0') MTU(1496)
STRTCPIFC INTNETADR('10.10.206.129')
NETSTAT *IFC shows the interface as active.

However, from RACK2HST:
PING RMTSYS(GDISYS2VLAN) LCLINTNETA('10.10.206.181')
Verifying connection to host system GDISYS2VLAN at address 10.10.206.129.
