Please reply to I just need clarification on the possibilities of migrating/restoring an existing LPAR into a WPAR. For instance, say I am running AIX on webLPAR1 with Websphere running and I want to migrate this into a WPAR, How do I go about it ?.
Similarly, how do I migrate back from WPAR to LPAR if I need to, say the WPAR strategy is not working.
A prompt response will be greatly appreciated.

For access management, on ssh usage as well as tivoli directory services (LDAP). I am unable to start ssh daemon from the system wpar. Any advices on the 2 subjects ?

SSH question.
This is what I did from the global partition
$1 = wpar name
mkdir -p /wpars/$1/etc/openssh
mkdir -p /wpars/$1/home/root/.ssh
cp /etc/openssh/ssh_config /wpars/$1/etc/openssh/.
cp /etc/openssh/sshd_config /wpars/$1/etc/openssh/.

echo "/usr/lpp/openssh/inst_root/openssh.rte.post_i" > /wpars/$1/etc/bdonce
echo "rmitab bdonce" >> /wpars/$1/etc/bdonce
chmod 777 /wpars/$1/etc/bdonce
echo "bdonce:2:once:/etc/bdonce" >> /wpars/$1/etc/inittab

regarding 'Modified AIX commands' on page 50.
the 'topas command' have a modified behavior when running in WPAR environment, this is not documented in the Redbook and unfortunately only partly revised in the public AIX 6.1 on-line documentation. One example is the %Resc field in the 'topas' WPAR screen.
