Being an IBM i Administrator and stepping into the world of Virtual I/O Server can be a daunting task. Fortunately, many of the tasks of installing and configuring VIOS can be done through the Hardware Management Console you’ve possibly been using to manage your IBM i partitions for years. I will show you the easiest way to 

install VIOS and make preparations to start creating your virtual environment, which will allow you to easily share physical adapters, and migrate active partitions using Live Partition Mobility.

  • How to Prepare for Installing VIOS
  • How to Install VIOS Using the Enhanced HMC Interface.
  • Post Installation Steps Recommended Before Virtualizing I/O.
