RE: Applying TR5



fixed

I did not download an image. I selected the option to download direct to my
system, after which it asked for my system's IP address, and a User ID and
password. It took hours but finally finished.

Using WRKIMKCLG shows nothing, so apparently it didn't go into an image
catalog. There are a LOT of SAVF in QGPL though, with very current dates
(11/27/12). That must be them, but don't know how to apply them.

Did you download an image? If so;

You may already have an image catalog:

WRKIMGCLG -> Will show you existing catalogs.

put the image into the correct directory for the image catalog. A 2
(change) will show you the name of the directory associated with the image
catalog. I use a directory of the same name as the image catalog to avoid
confusion.

Once the image is in the directory, load the image ADDIMGCLGE using the
TOFILE Option of *FROMFILE to avoid having duplicate files.

Load the image catalog to a virtual device (mine is called OPTVRT01).
After it is loaded you can then access the drive on the install PTF
options.

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.

I have:

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 . . .
