Thanks for that!

I will scratch this from my list of things to try. :-)

It is was I suspected and I expect it's the fact that the stuff is new (or at least different serial numbers) it gets new en** numbers and new fc** numbers.

Tried this (boot replicated VIOS to other machine) with same hardware (2*P7 boxes) and the result is not suitable
for DR purposes as you will run into lots of new devices due to serial number (or maybe bus number) changes.

Better way is to have two VIOS on two SANs.

I have not tried to replicate the VIOS servers via the SAN but it strikes me that this would not be a good idea. It seems unlikely to me that a replicated VIO server would be any level of happy at all if IPLed onto another system. That said, I've not tried it either. Dang another thing for the 'some day' list.....
