Comment item per profile for LPAR

Would be nice to have a comment field for each profile per lpar so customer can add text for the profile about config, dates of changing , change history etc.

    Hi Vince,

    We have evaluated this request and is being considered part of long term roadmap.

    Somewhat related is RTC ID 197815 (which is in planned for future release state). Coupled with this request, the original request here could be expanded to:

    Create additional fields stored in the LPAR profile:
    - tags, for sorting display at machine/MMC view or otherwise grouping (command line?) lpars
    - freeform description of the LPAR (e.g. purpose, owner, etc)
    - comment field as requested here, to allow notes for the LPAR
    and allow these fields to be part of the profile and thus migratable between MMCs and HMCs the way other profile characteristics are.

    Not trying to hijack this RTC, but seems like these (above) are all related to help us clearly document and identify LPARS. Thanks!
