DLPAR "move" adapter option in Enhanced HMC GUI

System: Enhanced HMC GUI
Actor: DLPAR physical adapter

Desc: DLPAR is used to dynamically move a physical adapter from one LPAR to another. In the Classic GUI, this option could be initiated from the current LPAR that the adapter was allocated to, and in one step. With the Enhanced GUI, you must complete two separate steps to do this same function. The adapter must be removed from the currently allocated system and the change saved. Additionally, you will need to add it to the desired LPAR and save a second time. So, many more mouse clicks.

    Attachment (Use case): This shows screenshots of how the DLPAR worked in the Classic HMC GUI. This same use case functionality was not carried over to the Enhanced GUI.
