Zones on AIX 6.1 -> Workload Partitions

On an AIX system you can also create zones like in Solaris 10 but here
they are named WPAR ( workload partitions ).

the commands are

mkwpar -n
The default directory is /wpars if not defined otherwise in mkwpar.

Smitty also contains a menu entry for WPAR maintenance, where you have
an option to add a network interface to the WPAR.
