LPM Validation to check for available CPUs based on OS.
Hi team; we've seen that when you have IFL (Linux and VIOS cpus only) configured on your servers, LPM validation does not check for available AIX cpu resources on the target based on the os running lpar that you are moving. The validations takes into account the whole ammount of cpu without discriminating between Linux and AIX cpus and the LPM opperation might fail if there are enought cpus in total but not enough for the os that you are moving.
For example: If you move the lpar A (EC=2) running AIX and on the target there are 4 available cpus in total but they are divided on 3 Linux/VIOS and 1 AIX, LPM Validation will success but LPM Opperation will fail.
