Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I seem to recall that the load source is usually mirrored and not placed under Raid 5. In the event of a failure the mirror is used and the system will still IPL.

    If the system is RAID only (including the Load Source) and the load source fails and the system is IPLed the IPL will work but take a lot longer. If Disks are available it would be better to first setup Raid using all available drives except the Load source and one matching drive. Then start Mirroring on ASP1 and only the two drives not in a raid set will be mirrored.
