On page 23 you claim that IVM is incapable of providing LPM capabilities. That is in correct. As long as the server has PowerVM Enterprise capability, LPM will work.

I'd like to retract my comment, it said IVE, not IVM, which does inhibit LPM... please delete both comments.

Good work guys, but need some rework.

HMC is depricated since april 2011 need to use IBM® Systems Director Management Console (SDMC) instead.

7.3 SAP support needs to be revisited

Oracle RAC is already supported. See sap Note 527843 - Oracle RAC support in the SAP environment.

SAP NetWeaver MDM is currently not supported - is wrong. MDM 7.1 on AIX is supported. See PAM

I was disappointed to see that you have made no reference to other STG technologies that would be very useful here such as IBM Enterprise Identity Mapping for single signon. See$FILE/sapSsoAbapOnI5_20080506.pdf for an example but it works with all Power OSs.
