cfgmgr now gives this:
Method error (/usr/lib/methods/cfgpager -l pager0 ): 0514-040 Error initializing a device into the kernel. Method error (/usr/lib/methods/loadkclic -l): 0514-038 Error loading kernel extension. loadkclic: load kernel extension failed. Method error (/usr/lib/perf/cfg_pmsvcs load): 0514-068 Cause not known. setup_branchtable: Processor not yet supported.
The loadkclic is IZ78017 but I can't find anything about the other two.
The fun thing is that current VIO is AIX 126.96.36.199 and you have to be at 188.8.131.52 to fully exploit POWER7 performance.
I'm going to apply SP01, make a backup, and then make a frankenvio by updating with AIX 184.108.40.206 and see what happens.
