In this article we will display the
actions required to register an AIX system with the WPAR Manager so
that WPAR's can be created on and moved between participating
The previous article shows how to install the WPAR Manager.
Recall that all the systems are being
installed, or cloned, from a single mksysb image. One reason for this
is to assure that all the agent systems have the same level of AIX
installed. This uniformity is important to ensure that Live

In the next article we shall look at
creating and moving a system WPAR.
