Hi Scott, one question please, where is the heartbeat between the two SEA's working? On the VLAN 4095 or on the default VLAN. And, if i understand you correct, all LPARS work on the PVID LAN. No additional VLAN is nessecary?

Starting with FW 780, VLAN 4095 will not be available for user configuration. It will be dedicated for SEA partners identifcation/validation and heartbeat.VLAN 4095 will allow multiple VIO/SEA failover pairs. Still, 2 VIOs only per SEA failover configuration. Prerequisites are VIO 223, FW 780 and HMC 7.7.8.

Hi Scott, is there some restriction when doing a LPAR LPM migration from one system with virtual adapters control channel to systems with this new configuration?.

I do no see any restrictions regarding LPM. This new SEA configuration method is meant to be upward compatible, and as the exact same functionality.

I was unable to successfully create the sea with the attribute of ha_mode=sharing. It only worked with ha_mode=auto. Is this a limitation?
