I think it's possible to create a WPAR by restoring parts of an mksysb into this new WPAR using the "mkwpar" command ("-B" flag).

Here are the docs:

I'm not very familiar with the WPAR concept, sorry.

I could possibly assist you with specific issues, but at the moment I can't write a complete WPAR cookbook for you. Sorry again!

What do you mean with "migrate"?

An LPAR is a complete AIX system, a WPAR is an isolated execution environment inside an AIX system.

Of course you can set up a WPAR in an AIX system and install the applications previously running in an own LPAR in that new WPAR.

I would not call that a migration, though. At least I'm not aware of any LPAR-to-WPAR migration tools.

Hey.. you're fast today! :-)
OK, it's not migration.. We have al old power system with AIX 6.1 running with an APP. We'd like, if possible, to make, let say a mksysb or something similar, and create a new wpar on some LPAR. Is it possible?
