Customers networking department want to have information about the adapter ports connected to their networking switch. When using SEA with EtherChannel beneath these information are provided for only one port. Need to enhance the lldp part on AIX ...

The AIX iSCSI sw initiatior problems are only supported when the iSCSI target is also AIX. This makes iSCSI a non-option in the AIX world. IBM needs to support the iSCSI sw initiator as a standards-based adapter for it to be relevant.
fcstat and underlying APIs - virtual interface data
fcstat shows -1 for a bunch of stats "from" a virtual adapter (NPIV). That's not what the API returns (all zeroes). If the driver doesn't support that call, there's a way to return that status through the API and say it on the screen. Integer fiel...
A way to run chfs / allocp in a preview mode would be extremely useful. It has been found that attempts to expand striped logical volumes can fail in seemingly random fashion. This makes the success of the operation unpredictable which can be cost...
Update of allocp needed to permit usage of all available space in VG
The layout of the logical volume on the existing luns is providing a constraint that is restricting which disks can be used for expansion. Those luns are not being counted in the expansion and allocp produces the message: 0516-404 allocp: This sys...
