you should look for manuals for the virtualization solutions, not the base OS.

Well I learned the most from an IBM class called "System p LPAR and Virtualization I" The class books are really good, and to tell you the truth out of all the AIX/pSeries classes I have taken that one was definelty the most interesting.

well, the de-facto virtualization solution is VMWare, especially ESX. Xen is behind it right now, but is catching up.

Unless IBM decides to port AIX to the x86 architecture which is unlikely, I believe VMWare and Xen are off topic on the AIX forum.

aix virtualization

VMWare and Xen are WAY off topic here.

Try a google (because the IBM.com search function is pants) for:

site:ibm.com advanced power virtualisation

site:ibm.com advanced power virtualization

site:ibm.com apv

for some interesting reading.

Virtualization Demos

These are also available for viewing: Power5 Virtualization Demos

Note the IBM Virtualization is done in firmware, not in software like VMWare and Xen - although the "intel" platform is beginning to get hardware support.

Often there is a separate system called the HMC - Hardware Management Console - that is used to manage up to 32 systems. However, for the SMB market - that need only one server, there is an interface known as IVM - Integrated Virtualization Manager. This is an eclipse application that runs as part of the VIOS - Virtual I/O server.
Rootvg.Net has updates on the topic regularly.

IBM power virtualization can be done in software as well these days:

IBM taunts Sun, HP and VMware with $40 PowerVM hypervisor

Now IBM has chucked out the APV name in favor of PowerVM. In addition, it's offering PowerVM in a lower-end Express configuration for SMBs. The optional software will cost just $40 per core (for three virtual servers) in the Express bundle,
afaik - the PowerVM Hypervisor is still firmware (is also software) in that it runs as part of the system and NOT as part of a managing partition. Do not confuse Hypervisor with Virtual I/O Server - which I expect to still be part of the package.

In any case - I have some homework to find out what this "express" package actually contains.
