Re: IBM i 7.1 Technology Refresh 5 offers performance, usability, and integration enhancements



fixed

Rob,

Why not just download it from the web site? Faster, easier, less expensive, so why would I order media?

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
box.
