cdrom confusion on the vio client lpar


In my vio server I have the below output
$ lsvopt | grep -i SAPSITGS
sapsitgs_cdrom    TL12UP.iso                                   3182

In my vio client lpar I have the below output
root@sapsitgs:/ # lsdev -Cc cdromcd0 Available  Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server
cd1 Available  Virtual SCSI Optical Served by VIO Server

So it is clear that the cd device has been served to the lpar by the vio server. My question is why there are 2 cd devices showing up in available state?

Do you have dual VIO setup? please check for the 2nd vio also.
