HMC V9 Partitions table view to include column for IPL Source
On our previous version of the HMC firmware V7790 the display of LPARs on a server included a column for the IPL Source. After upgrading to new HMCs running V9 firmware to manage our POWER9 servers, the Partitions display (table view) no longer include a column for the IPL source. Being as this view used to exist, a support case was submitted asking 'why does this column no longer exist?'. After being advised "there have been multiple changes since this version [V7790] of HMC, but you can always submit an RFE...". Whilst I disagree that this is an enhancement (happy to be disproved), please consider this request to reinstate a column for the IPL Source in the Partitions table view display.
