Doesn't that imply that all zones will be running at all times? I
would imagine there are so many scenarios between DR, fault management
automatically offlining DIMMs, etc. that would make such a thing more
complicated than it might first appear (though this is just all
speculation on my part).  What I would expect is that if a zone has a
cap more than what's available, that it would error out (i.e. in your
scenario, the last zone to boot would fail).
