I am creating logical volumes on a VIOS, from which I will assign disk space to 4 LPARs
The first 3 commands go well, but the last command goes badly
# mklv -y lpar_lv4 rootvg 40G
0516-404 allocp: This system cannot fulfill the allocation request.
There are not enough free partitions or not enough physical volumes
to keep strictness and satisfy allocation requests. The command
should be retried with different allocation characteristics.
0516-822 mklv: Unable to create logical volume.
I suspect there is not enough disk space on the SAS drive, but the hardware guy is out and I can not determine how large the SAS is
1> Is there a command I can run to see how much disk space is left
2> WOuld 40 GB of disk space be large enough for most uses of an LPAR, assuming the LPAR is holding an app server.
