In the latest version of PowerVC 126.96.36.199 it is possible during deployment to select two redundant SR-IOV networks. With that PowerVC will create two vNIC backing devices, one in each VIO (assuming two VIOS).
Especially CSI customers want to have more redundancy in the system, by having both redundant networks as backing device in each VIOS. That means in a two VIOS configuration, PowerVC should create in total four backing devices.
Maybe this is could be a selectable option in the deploy dialog or maybe this could be an option that could be configured using powervc-config.
