fixed

That fix appears to be for the Iseries Access client on your PC.

Subject: PTF steps


Hi, 


I saw this conversation regarding installing PTF's from the IBM web site
directly to the iSeries.   How do I get the .exe file to be in binary
format (.bin)?  


E.g.  When I downloaded service pack SI24723 it came down as SI24723.EXE
and when I FTP it to my iSeries it is still a .exe file.


Thanks. 


Sheri

I normally FTP them from IBM directly to the iSeries, but no matter...
 
First FTP it from your PC to the /tmp IFS directory:
- FTP <iseries.system.name or ip-address>
- cd /tmp
- lcd /mylocalptfdirectory
- bin
- put <binaryfile>.bin
- quit

Then do the following to create a virtual CD drive & image catalog and
install the PTFs: 

- CRTDEVOPT DEVD(OPTVRT01) RSRCNAME(*VRT)
- VRYCFG CFGOBJ(OPTVRT01) CFGTYPE(*DEV) STATUS(*ON)
- CRTIMGCLG IMGCLG(PTFINSTALL) DIR('/ptfinstall') CRTDIR(*YES)
- ADDIMGCLGE IMGCLG(PTFINSTALL) FROMFILE('/tmp/<binary file>.bin')
- LODIMGCLG IMGCLG(PTFINSTALL) DEV(OPTVRT01)
- VFYIMGCLG IMGCLG(PTFINSTALL) TYPE(*PTF) SORT(*YES)

- INSPTF LICPGM((*ALL)) DEV(OPTVRT01) INSTYP(*DLYALL) (Note: If this
command doesn't exist on your system then do GO PTF, option 8.)

I can find the last part pretty easily. I currently have it on my PC.  I
just don't remember how to get it onto my IFS & how to get everything
else
hooked together.  I've done it once before & have misplaced my
instructions!
 
Please help!
