In PowerVC 2.0.3 when you deploy a VM from the UI, when you have more than 500 networks in the list, the page is totally unusable correctly.
Instead of having the list of ALL the networks already populated, it would probably be better to be able ...
Make VM search field search within ALL the VMs and not just the displayed ones (PowerVC 2.0.3)
In PowerVC 1.4.4, when using the search field in the VM List page, the search was done through the list of ALL VMs and not just the ones currently displayed.

Retype (migrate) volume between mirrored storage templates (different pools, same storage provider)
Problem: If you have a mirrored volume in PowerVC (Storage-Template-A) and you have to retype (migrate) this to also mirroed Storage-Template-B for any reason, this didn't work/isn't supported.
Most customers, which do have a SVC, are using mir...
