I am testing new features ISD 6.3.2/VIOS 18.104.22.168 for disk provisionning using VIOS ShareStoragePool.
ISD (6.3.2) on AIX 6.1TL8SP1 with VMControl (22.214.171.124-201211131517)
VIOS pair vios14a/vios14b with Shared Storage Pool (SSP) setup.
I've deployed a VA imported from a OVF on a Power Systems, using VIOS-SSP for storage.
This works as designed. A disk is automatically provisionned from my VIO-SSP pool "spx".
Now, I want to capture this Workload (created by VMControl) as mentionned hereafter.
