Section 4 uses the term PVID and says it stands for "Physical Volume Identifiers". In this context PVID is the Port VLAN ID.

In section 2.2, you wrote that You can use the alt_root_vg command to deploy other Virtual I/O Servers. But, there is not command like "alt_root_vg". Instead, you might correct it as "alt_rootvg_op"

Plz, Ignore the above comments. In vios, alt_root_vg is a 'alt_rootvg_op' in AIX.

Mr. Crumley, I found time to make this update and will place it online in about 24 hours.

Section 5.3.3 states that "Virtual I/O Server software updates must be done while all clients that use storage in the SSP are shut down".

This is no longer true since VIOS 2.2 FP26 introduced non-disruptive rolling upgrades for applying service packs.

This is taken from red Book SG24-7940-05 - IBM PowerVM Virtualization Introduction and Configuration.
