How many? I'm adding 8 more CPUs and 16GB to our 560 Saturday (which is one
of many reasons my AIX patches are way behind)

I can create you a .4 entitled VIOC (presented as 2 VCPU with SMT, so 4
logical CPU) with 2 GB memory. How much disk does it need?

I fixed this a couple of times. :-)  You need "-bbigtoc" anywhere you do
