Power Systems to support replacement of WWPN's on HBA Cards
On Power9 the EN1C/EN1D cards use hard soldered SFP's; when a SFP fails the HBA must replaced, which requires SAN Zoning Changes
These cards have the capability to replace the WWPN/WWNN, and we require a method to update the replacement HBA's WWPN's, supportable on AIX (VIOS), and supportable on RHEL on Power as bare metal (no statement of support exists for RHEL on Power baremetal although the HBA vendors utilities do exist)
