Rob,
I have noticed this feature start to appear in later versions of HMC,however I have to admit that I was more than a little nervous about trying it in anger.
The main HMC/VIOS problems remains patching and updating. I recently installed a p7+ system and was unable to configure it until I installed the very latest version of everything and this proved a major chicken-and-egg exercise because there was no way to correctly see the LAN adapter and so I had to burn everything to DVDs and then manually load it whilst in the datacentre, which is very time-consuming and disruptive. IBM needs to look into a way of simplifying this process.
