  • Versioned WPARs can be installed only on an AIX 7.1 operating system.
  • The latest available, and supported version of AIX 5.2 is technology level (TL) 10, and service pack (SP) 8. Therefore, any backup image that is used to create an AIX 5.2 WPAR must be from an AIX 5.2 system running the latest version.

Restrictions:
  • PowerHA 7.1 support for Versioned WPAR is restricted to 32 Service IP addresses (per WPAR-enabled Resource Group).
  • Mixed mode operation, where in some of the nodes of the WPAR-enabled resource group has Versioned WPAR software installed whereas some other nodes do not, shall not be supported by PowerHA.
  • Cloning (via the PowerHA corrective action) of WPAR profile, shall not be supported for Versioned WPARs (in PowerHA).

Notes:
  • APAR IZ91004 is included in RSCT V3.1.0.0 SP4
  • WPAR property changes do not take effect until the next time the resource group is brought on line
