IDS licensing on VPAR - virtual partitioning

Hi,

We are planning to move to new hardware (HP) with Vpar (virtual partitioning), the current IDS version what we have is 9.4, we do not intend to upgrade the engine during the move but will upgrade it after a few months. As per IBM, licensing of IDS 9.4 is not supported for VPAR (virtual partitioning), in order for IDS to be supported on VPAR we need to upgrade the engine to IDS 10 and install tivoli license manager. 
 
The question i have for the group is 
 
1) Is anyone in this situation ?
2) Was anyone able to convert from full-capacity licensing terms to sub-capacity licensing terms (for IDS V9 within the HP/UX VPAR virtualization technology), even though a strict interpretation of IBM's licensing policies would appear to require IDS V 10+ and Tivoli License Manager?  If so, how?

Thanks

IDS 9 is not an eligible product according to PA site.
As for the ITLM installation and regular reporting, there are very recent news... Check the following URLs:

http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/services/cwepassport.nsf/wdocs/tivolilicensemanager
http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/services/cwepassport.nsf/wdocs/subcapacityattachments
http://www-142.ibm.com/software/sw-lotus/services/cwepassport.nsf/wdocs/temporary_tracking_reporting_requirement_suspension

They're all connected... the last seems to be the more complete.

I advise you to contact IBM directly. I do not know why IDS 9 is not eligible. If may be just for commercial reasons (?) or it may be related to how ITLM works (??)
You could upgrade to 10, before the move... The upgrade from 9.4 to 10 should be painless, assuming you have a decent test environment...

Regards.
