Re: Stop pissing about
Last time i was doing AIX about 5/6 years ago we implemented a tool called PowerVM.
Basically you added your SANs and Switches [we used both v7000 and the AFA FS9000], added your Power Systesm [775s and 795s], VIOServers and it was all in a web interface. You could spin out AIX LPARs in a few minutes.
It basically felt like OpenStack on Power.
It was pretty cool to use if you were an old school unix admin.
