Physical resources are assigned to the I/O server partition in the same way physical resources are assigned to other partitions. The IBM Virtual I/O Server (VIOS) provides a scriptable command-line user interface (CLI). The VIOS is administered through the CLI, including device management (physical, virtual, and LVM), LAN, install, security, user management, OEM software, and maintenance. The creation and deletion of the virtual client and server adapter is managed by the HMC GUI and pSeries POWER5 server firmware. The nexus between the client and server adapters is defined when the virtual adapters are created.

An I/O server can have a Shared Ethernet Adapter that allows LPARs on the virtual Ethernet (VLAN) to share the access to the physical Ethernet and communicate with systems outside the central electronics complex (CEC). This function enables LPARs on the internal VLAN to share the VLAN with stand-alone servers on the outside VLAN.

Virtual I/O facilitates the sharing of physical resources between partitions on OpenPower systems. Sharing physical resources enables the creation of more partitions than there are I/O slots or physical devices and allows the creation of partitions without requiring additional physical I/O resources. Partitions may have dedicated I/O resources, virtual I/O resources or both.
