Where would your System p be without LPAR?: The Redbook "Simplifying Logical Partitioning for System i and System p" shows you how logical partitioning (LPAR) provides the capability to run multiple operating systems, each a partition on the same physical processor, memory, and I/O attachment configuration. The publication describes and provides examples of using the 2007 enhancements to the system planning and deployment tools and processes for planning, ordering, and deploying a partitioned environment on IBM System i and IBM System p configurations.
Implementing Sun Solaris on IBM BladeCenter Servers: This Redpaper describes how to install Solaris on supported BladeCenter servers, either natively or with the use of a Solaris Installation Server and covers how to incorporate the latest patches to Solaris from Sun, plus updated drivers for the Ethernet and RAID devices in the blade servers. It also explains how to implement Fibre Channel storage and how to configure boot from SAN; and you get to learn how to integrate blade servers running Solaris into an IBM Director or SNMP-based management infrastructure.
