Hi,

you can't install IVM "in AIX 6.1".

IVM is a virtual machine on its own, combining the functionality of the Hardware Management Console and the Virtual I/O Server.

It is meant for customers who want to run the PowerVM vurtualization platform and either don't have a HMC or can't use one (as with Blade Servers, which don't have an HMC connector).

Consequently, IVM is the very first partition to be installed on a PowerVM capable machine (Power5 and up).

A non-virtualized standalone system which might be already running on your hardware will be lost.

Is this what you desire?

IVM is documented in chapter 2.6.

Thx for the points!
