JS23 VIO setup.

I hope there is someone out there that understands VIO settings on a JS23.

The problem I have is the VIO server already exists but I need to increase the number of VSCSI adapters (VHOST).

If this was a normal LAPR on a p series using an HMC I would simply create a virtual SCSI adapter and make it so any LPAR can use it or connect it solely to one LPAR for disk provisioning. For the life of me I can find no such facility on the JS23 setup!

Anyone done this before please?

THe new blade centre chassis supports Pseries ?

Yes it a a blasde center chassis but the only way in is through the VIO on a web front end.

when you create a new lpar on the blade vio, the server and client vadapters are generated automatically
