Add the feature to disable migration with Novalink, as it is already possible with the HMC (migration_disabled=0)
We have this customer that needs to move its Oracle server to a powerVC environment but wants to be sure that no LPM will be done. The only proof we can provide him (if we exclude the PowerVC/HMC/errpt logs which can be deleted at will), would be to show him that at a LPAR level, the migration ability is simply disabled.
It is possible to disable it with the chsyscfg command : chsyscfg -m frame -r lpar -i "lpar_id=12,migration_disabled=1"
... but is is not available to hosts managed by Novalink.
So we have to move this VM to an old Power7 managed by HMC to allow this disable operation.
Even better, it should be authorized in the GUI (checking a box in the VM properties) !
