Jim's right. TR's aren't like V5R4M5 or 6.1.1 where you had to follow the
infocenter section "Replacing Licensed Internal Code and IBM i of the same
version and release". Granted, you DO really have to read their
instructions as some of them may throw in an extra IPL or something.
If you got a nice BP I would recommend getting the respin if for no other
reason than to keep it on a shelf in case:
- you decide to spin up a new lpar. This would have the new TR on it.
- in a DR situation you need to boot from disc. Be a bear to have a brand
spanking new box only to find out your respin is too old to boot that new
