PowerVC 1.4.4 has lot many features for you to explore. In a nutshell, you can take a look at What's new!

  • Work with Initaitor port groups (IPG)

  • Pin virtual machines to a host

  • Recall virtual machines to a host

  • Retain, change, and save availability priority

  • Share images across projects

  • Email notifications for DRO events

  • Customize hostname on the backend storage (SVC)

  • ....and many such...

And where would a new version of PowerVC be without a new version of the Knowledge Center? You can learn about all the above functions and more here:


Although a little less exciting than new support, there are a couple of fixes too. These are the APAR fixes included with this release:
IT30818 -- PowerVC failed to keep all volumes in a single IO group.
IT30977 -- PowerVC failed to use port groups while creating zones.
IT30929 -- Live capture fails to create volumes in the source volume pool.

You can find the fixes here: Fix Central.
