Dear Checkpoint, can I put this on my Xmas wishlist - can you please add selection of 32/64bit VS mode selection into vsx_util reconfigure process? The one that's set by vs_bits command. It's so easy to forget/overlook that. By default it will use 32 bit even your GAIA is running 64. So if you had a major failure on one of the boxes in the cluster or doing HW upgrade and you are running 64bit VSes, you will fail miserably if you forget to run vs_bits command after vsx_util reconfigure. Cluster won't work of course. We had to learn it hard way but it's easily avoidable. Thanks Santa!
