In my case, there isn't much customization at all. I am still
relatively new to the HMC so I use it sparingly. So, if I understand
you correctly, just creating a new VMWare instance using the provided
vHMC image would be relatively easy? I would just have to use the
correct network settings so it can find my existing partitions (2 - 1
IBMi and 1 Linux) ?
Right now my biggest question is the install media for an upgrade vs
update. I can find the install image (iso) to update the current vHMC
to the latest v9r1 fix level. But I can't seem to find an iso that is
an "upgrade" from v9r1 to v9r2. I can find VMWare images for v9r2 and
also can find an "update" image to take an existing v9r2 to the latest
fix levels. But I haven't found "upgrade" images for v9r1 to v9r2.
Maybe I'll try the VMWare image and see if I can get it connected and

IMHO, if the target HMC version supports your hardware and firmware (v10
supports P10, P9 and P8) I would see no problem in moving to that. And
unless you have a lot of customization on the HMC (users, groups,
permissions, that kind of stuff) you could just spin up new HMCs and move
the machines to them.
