Classic View

La vue classique devait être trop simple à utiliser, IBM nous impose à présent la vue etendue+ sans avoir le choix lors de la connexion.
On passe son temps à chercher ce que l'on utilise depuis plus de 10 ans.
La navigation n'est pas intuitive

    HMC Enhanced UI does have mechanism to add virtual storage via vSCSI & vFC. Please see earlier comments.

    For adding storage mapping via Virtual Fibre Channel to the partition, you can do so via the Virtual Storage section under the partition. With the Enhanced UI, you can specify the port to which the connection needs to be made and HMC will create the required adapters in the partition and the VIOS and create the mapping. Please refer to!/wiki/Power%20Systems/page/Partition%20Virtual%20Storage%20Management%20using%20HMC%20Enhanced%20UI for more details

    Please do let us know if you need more information on working with virtual storage in the Enhanced UI or if you face any specific problems with the Enhanced UI.
