Versioned Workload Partitions (WPARs) is a new revolution in the area of WPARs in the IBM AIX® operating system. Applications that are supported in existing operating systems can also be configured to run in Versioned WPARs. However, there can be issues while configuring and running the same applications in Versioned WPARs. This article addresses trouble shooting of problems that might occur when common applications such as IBM WebSphere® Application Server, IBM DB2® and others are started in Versioned WPARs. This article also discusses the performance comparison of applications and benefits of moving an existing setup(on older hardware) to new IBM POWER7® hardware in the form of Versioned WPARs.
