comment Does AIX support Advanced Format (4k sector size) SAN LUNs?
Using 512B when your storage works in 4k blocks means that any small IO might waste as much as three quarters of the block and do four times as many IOs as needed. That said, people tend to underestimate exactly how much of their IO is literally single block non-contiguous. Even random IO databases tend to do IO in clumps. Many small random clumps, but not always single 512B transactions.

I think you can- if it's the same vlan, that means it's not on the same interface: if you did a vlan create interface0 310 followed by another vlan create interface0 310, I think it would fail. If the second one was on another interface, though, that would be fine. And then you could assign interface1-310 to the nonprod IPSpace temporarily

You can also use ndmpcopy to grab data from snapshots, so if you ever did clobber something like your /etc/snapmirror.conf, you could ndmpcopy it from a snapshot to the /etc directory.
