You need a virtualisation license.

Depending on which virtualisation technique you want to use (IVM or HMC) and how you organized disks and network (adapters) you may or may not need 1 or 2 VIOS LPARs.

Depending on which virtualisation technique you want to use (IVM or HMC) you may need a HMC if you do not have one.

Tell us more about your (prospective) environment and we can tell you more about your requirements.

I hope this helps.

How many disks/controllers/fibre cards/ethernet ports etc. All of these count when assessing a server's suitability for partitioning. You cannot count the ethernet ports labelled as HMC as these talk to the service processor, not the user part of the server.
