    This IBM Redbooks publication gives a broad understanding of the new Power5 architecture as it applies to logical partitioned eServer i5 servers. This functionality is delivered through a new configuration and management interface called the Hardware Management Console (HMC).

    This book will help you design your server partition scheme from scratch. We also discuss the requirements to migrate from existing iSeries servers with and without logical partitions.

    This book will help you install, tailor, and configure logical partitions (LPARs) on eServer i5 servers. You will understand how to setup the server and HMC via the guided setup wizard, and also cover the creation of multiple i5/OS partitions.
