RE: V7R1 (7.1) discs



fixed

I guess the rest was just a waste of bandwidth and disk space.

I uploaded only the I_BASE and B_ discs and added to an image catalog. I selected the programs I want to upgrade then "List licensed programs not found on media" which says (All licensed programs were found on media).

That's the leap I made which led to my comment "I was looking in numerical order which apparently isn't how IBM thinks." I would expect GROUP1_01, GROUP1_02, GROUP1_03 to go together.

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v7r1m0/index.jsp?topic=%2Frzahc%2Frzahcswsmedialabel.htm

That's the same list that I have in two PDF files - the V7.1 install/upgrade guide and a file that was included with the download of all the images.

My confusion is all the extra discs that I downloaded beyond the BASE and B_*, not counting the PC System i Access software that I downloaded previously to install and got again with the OS download.

Like you say, though, I should be able to load the image catalog with the base discs and do a prepare for install to see what is found. That might lead to obvious answers of missing discs that I can add in.

This isn't where the package was so large it divv'd it up is it.

Example:

B_GROUP1_01_IBM_i_RS_710-10_20110408_164656238.iso
B_GROUP2_01_IBM_i_RS_710-10_20110408_224807959.iso
B_GROUP3_01_IBM_i_RS_710-10_20110409_072420074.iso

So the above 3 are actually 1 set.

If you look at the ibm website that list(s) out media maybe you could load up the ISO's and compare them against it.

I wonder if one of the IBM i Access discs is for PC installation?

I used download director to get V7.1 and licensed programs.

I started extracting images from the zip files and can't match up the
names easily to the document (included with the download). I'd hate
to think using physical media is simpler (no doubt it's a major pain,
especially when remote to the system).

I start with I_BASE_01 which seems to be
LCD8_1902_01_I_BASE_01_Licensed_Machine_Code_RS_710-F.iso
Then I want B_GROUPx_nn which I have as:
B_GROUP1_01_IBM_i_RS_710-10_20110408_164656238.iso
B_GROUP1_02_IBM_i_20110323_153145476.iso
B_GROUP1_03_IBM_i_20100402_204531916.iso
B_GROUP1_04_IBM_i_20100916_064637309.iso
B_GROUP1_05_IBM_i_20100321_174458221.iso
B_GROUP2_01_IBM_i_RS_710-10_20110408_224807959.iso
B_GROUP2_02_IBM_i_20110324_105023009.iso
B_GROUP3_01_IBM_i_RS_710-10_20110409_072420074.iso
B_GROUP3_02_IBM_i_20110324_105022995.iso

When I look at the next part of the document, though, it says I'm
looking for B_GROUPx_01 for 5770-SS1 options Base, 1, 2; B_GROUPx_02
for options 3, 5-9, 12, 18, 30; B_GROUPx_03 for options 14, 21, 22,
29, 33;
B_GROUPx_04 for many more options... and B_GROUPx_05 for more options.

I guess I have those; I was looking in numerical order which
apparently isn't how IBM thinks.

B_GROUPx_04 includes 5770-XH2 IBM i Access for Web and 5770-XW1 IBM i
Access Family. I also have
5770_XW1_GROUP1_IBM_i_Access_Family_20100401_083518187.iso; is that a
duplicate? My list like that goes on and on; that's just one example.

I have discs named with 5770_PT1_OPT_2, 5770_PT1_OPT_3, 5770_QU1,
5770_SS1_PSF, 5770_WDS (4 of these), 5770_XH2, a bunch for Websphere
Application Server Express V6, Java Developer Kit. Others that, if I
trust the name, I actually don't need because we don't have the
software installed (like DBB2_Web_Query on 3 discs).

Do I just throw everything in an image catalog and let the system try
to make sense of it? Every time I think I'm back on track I get
derailed again. :)
