Is Active Memory Expansion supported on IBM Power7 Blades, i.e. PS701 ? If it is, what are the AIX , Blade Firmware levels required to support it ?

    It it doesnt fail on me, all p7 firmware supports AME; AIX must be 6.1 TL3 if I recall correctly.
    Mandatory is that the blade must be managed by an SDMC console.

    It is supported but it was not available for purchase until after the SDMC general availabilty. It's this FC for 701/702:

    4796 Active Memory Expansion Enablement

    Any level after April should support it, but, I'm not sure what the minimum level is. Due to SDMC recommendations we are running the latest:
