If you are using AIX 5, you can disable the paging space without re-boot. If you are using AIX 4.3, you can only disable the paging space by re-boot

                                                                        │
 swapoff /dev/paging01   <-- command to deactivate paging space paging01

My answer is correct. AIX 5.1 support dynamic remove a paging space. The command is swapoff.

                                  Paging Space

Move cursor to desired item and press Enter.

  List All Paging Spaces
  Add Another Paging Space
  Change / Show Characteristics of a Paging Space
  Remove a Paging Space
  Activate a Paging Space
  Deactivate a Paging Space

Sorry for posting plain wrong answer, cpc - you are right, I checked on 4.3.3, on 5.1 it removes just fine...
