HMC: Add functions to "Enhanced +" view currently only available in "Classic" view.

Trying to do dynamic lpar and create a new virtual scsi adapter and there is no such option in the Enhanced View.
IBM says the wave of the future is command line and no one uses GUI.
I beg to differ.

When using the enhanced+ HMC GUI, creating an "i hosting i" partition most of it needs to be done from command line interface (CLI)

    I am running HMC 8.8.6SP2 and I still fail to see how to dynamically add a new virtual adapter using the enhanced interface.

    The function to add storage for IBM I Hosting IBM I partition has been added in HMC V8 R8.7.0. Support for network (i.e able to create a trunk adapter on IBM I partition from Enhanced UI) will be added in 870 SP1.
