Has anyone had experience of installing a VIOS partition whose hdisks are on a 5901 SAS adapter which is located in a 5877?
I am installing VIOS from a 2.2 Install DVD. The partition profile owns two 5901 SAS adapters which are attached via an X cable to a 5887 disk drawers each with a 146GB disk for VIOS.
The install keeps falling over because it can't find any disks to boot. I'm pretty sure it's cabled properly. It's not that it falls over straight away, I get through SMS reading the DVD, starting the kernal and select language etc.
Firmware / HMC for the MMC is OK.
Thanks in advance for help..

For VIOS to be installed on disk in a 5887, you need an install image of 2.2.1.x.
I can now boot from the tape drive (which is a backupios of a system at 18.104.22.168) and select hdisk0.
However the BOS Install keeps failing with:
0516-404 allocp: Not enough PP to create an LV.
These are fresh 146GB install disks, so I am now at a loss for these messages.
Any further assistance greatly appreciated.

Where does the backupios image come from ? Is it from another VIO with mirrored rootvg ?
In that case, maybe the solution is to modify image.data and bosinst.data files to match install environment, or try to select a number of disks matching the mirroring on original configuration.
