SAN: I think the 50xx series but the 5035 may not, check with your partner
SRIOV are not needed, only fiber cards.
You can SAN boot any partition.

Which SAN devices work on the P05 systems?
Can any work on it?
Are the SR-IOV cards all that is needed to work with the SAN?
Does the system need a local drive?

Thanks, Darryl.

Don't know about on P8 but on P7 I know that IBM cuts your processor
speed in half when you violate the upper memory limit.

This also happened with the original 'Frankie' when we pushed that 170
over 1GB of ram which was the supported limit for the machine.

Betreff: Re: Can one have SANs on a P05 system?

In my experience this is spot on. You can do a few small LPARs but
that's about it on the P05 machines before the 64GB limit rears it's
head.
