We're about to start a new round of VIO upgrades and downtime and the rebuilding of a trashed VIO server is always a concern. Although we do have a two disk mirrored rootvg and therefore could unmirror rootvg and create an alternate rootvg image as a upgrade/backout method, this has been deemed to be time consuming and the loss of redundancy is unpopular. I was hoping that we could use a multibos image as a backout, in the same way we do for our AIX upgrades.
