 += AIX IVM LPAR Creation
 +When logged into the IVM installed on the VIOS you see the existing LPARs in the right panel. One is always there, the VIOS itself. If you want to create a new LPAR click on the "​Create Partition"​ button right above the existing LPARs. This will start a wizard which gives you the opportunity to create a LPAR:
  
 +{{aixlparcreation01.jpg}} ​
 +
 +Give the LPAR a name.
 +\\
 +{{aixlparcreation02.jpg}} ​
 +
 +Assign enough memory to the LPAR, the default is 128 MB which is by far not enough.
 +\\
 +{{aixlparcreation03.jpg}} ​
 +
 +Assign shared or physical processors.
 +\\
 +{{aixlparcreation04.jpg}} ​
 +
 +Set the virtual ethernet adapters to none and only use the Host Ethernet Adapter Ports. These are directly processed by the CPU which will give you an faster throughput.
 +\\
 +{{aixlparcreation05.jpg}} ​
 +
 +Set the storage type to existing physical volumes.
 +\\
 +{{aixlparcreation06.jpg}} ​
 +
 +Click next as you will assign storage after the creation of the LPAR.
 +\\
 +{{aixlparcreation07.jpg}} ​
 +
 +Do not assign any of the optical disks.
 +\\
 +{{aixlparcreation08.jpg}} ​
 +
 +Review the summary and click Finish if everything is correct.
 +
 +== Assigning storage
 +{{aixlparcreation09.jpg}} ​
 +
 +After creation you can open the properties by simply clicking on the name of the LPAR. Go to the tab "​Storage"​ where you can assign physical storage to the LPAR.
