Forgive me for starting this thread up again...
I just finished downloading, direct to my system (not my PC) using Fix
Central, the latest cume (which I presume contains TR5). It's been so long
since I did one of these updates I don't trust my memory.
Do I have to do something to make an image catalog, or is it already done
for me? Or, can I just use option 8 of the GO PTF, selecting *SERVICE, Auto
IPL=Y, Prompt for Media =3, Restart Type =*SYS, and other options = N.

Actually, it did a dual IPL last Saturday when I applied MF99005. I was
watching as my SF Giants were winning the WS. :)

Actually, it will go up and down several times both in LIC and the OS.
Unless your watching it, you won't really notice.
From the end user standpoint it's a single event, down and back.

This is interesting.
MF56173 applied permanently.
MF99005 applied permanently.
SF99707 level 4 installed.
SF99707 level 5 apply at next IPL.
Single LPAR, 1 processor.
Wonder what's going to happen when I IPL . . .
