FAQ: The boot disk for how many LPARs can be supported by the System p 590/595 RIO drawers when Advanced Power Virtualization (APV) is not being used?

Answer to this FAQ:

At time of announce, there are two p5-590/595 RIO drawers:
Feature 5791 has four 4packs, each with an integrated controller
Feature 5794 has two 4packs, each with an integrated controller

When APV is not being used, an individual controller and all devices attached to it can be 'owned' by one and only one partition. Therefore, since 5791 has four controllers, each controlling four disk bays, than it can support boot disk for four partitions.

The 5794 has two controllers, each controlling four disk bays, so it can support boot disk for two partitions.
