comment Why does Windows not recognize files inside Linux partitions?
What I was jumping on was the assertion that the format might just 'magically change' without any sort of versioning in place to guard against this situation. That's not what happens in the real world. Also, while they couldn't use the GPL code directly, there are no barriers to examining the code and making a compatible implementation without violating the GPL. FreeBSD did it - no problem. What it comes down to is: Microsoft doesn't want to do it.

comment Why does Windows not recognize files inside Linux partitions?
This is completely incorrect; the Linux filesystems (unlike NTFS) are well-documented and open source. Should new features be added, the filesystem would add a new option (sparse_super, acl, xattr, etc.) or bump the version and any driver which did not recognize those options or support that version will refuse to mount.

comment how do I install three linux based web servers in one machine?
Ewww - you don't need to install 3 separate VMs to use a separate IP on each web server! The IP address used by the web server will be specified in the configuration file, such as by the Apache Listen directive.

Clearly it's AIX - he wants to clone an LPAR (partition) and then do a system restore.

What Daniel said. Plus, instead of guessing, use the performance monitors to figure it out.

What's the device? Can you reconfig dhcp on it? Or is this enough?
