The Installation Toolkit (4.01) User manual (p.4) says:
"IBM Installation Toolkit v4.0.1 does not support Multipath, LVM, or NPIV configurations"
We want to run RHEL5 in an LPAR that makes use of a VIO Server for its LAN and SAN connections.
The VIO Server has has NPIV in place and has multiple connections to the SAN (multiple paths).
LVM is a requirement too.
So we pretty much need all these things.
Will LVM, NPIV and Multipathing be supported by I.T. in the future? If so, when?
And I was wondering if there are alternatives to the "IBM Installation Toolkit" to get it installed and working in the above situation?

Sorry for the late response. Unfortunatelly we don't currently support Multipath, LVM nor NPIV. We have plans to add support for these features in the next (4.2) release, so if everything goes well you'll soon be able to use the IBM Installation Toolkit for Linux with your setup.
Try the new IBM Installation Toolkit 4.1, many new features and IBM packages available
