Etherchannel Configuration Change Whilst in SEA

I know what you're thinking. It's that time of year where we all get together with our families and discuss how to remove an adapter from an etherchannel whilst it's in use by a Shared Ethernet Adapter (SEA). Sure, Granny has her opinions but they're outdated.
So, in order that you can spend more time with your families and less time arguing over why there's a padmin shell (!), here's how you do it.
This is a dual VIOS configuration.
ent20 is the SEA
ent14 is the etherchannel adapter (in this case it's a six port etherchannel)
ent12 is the adapter you want to remove from the etherchannel
You will need to repeat this process on the second VIOS. Now go and enjoy foods that we’re told to enjoy because it’s Christmas even though they’re rubbish (turkey, mince pies, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding…I’m looking at you).
Feedback always welcome.
