If I follow the user's success, they did NOT power down the Power hardware, but let it idle until the SAN was back up and running, then the IBM i partitions picked up where they left off.

That's what I like about IBM i. If it loses contact with its 'disks,' it posts a message that says "Give be back my disk."

Yes, I've seen SANs go down. (just had one two months ago) But if the
SAN goes down, the partitions that rely on that storage go down too, so
where's the savings? In the case of the failure I ran into once we get the
SAN back up and running, IBM i just connected and took off on its merry way
without dropping a beat. (and it was three days to get the SAN repaired
due to parts spread all over the US)
