      Description

      Currently, AIX volume groups are given 128-bit IDs. Facter assumes that all volume groups will have IDs of this size.

      It turns out that older versions of AIX created 64-bit IDs. These old short IDs can still be around in modern systems if the volume has survived multiple upgrades.
