I would agree with Jim, look into the network install. I regularly use it with good results.

Subject: Re: Installing a new partition - minimum config for FTP and Image Catalog

Unless you really have to FTP the image catalogs, why not just set up the network optical drives so you keep precisely one image catalog, (a catalog holding all the latest IBM i groups and cumulative goes just a shade over 55 Gig now) and use the backplane network to apply PTFs, remote boot and all the like ?

I think the list below will get you there, but why FTP? There are very good instructions on how to set up the network optical drives:

Thanks for the list. It was very helpful.

I am not dealing with VIOS as far as I know, but simply have 3
partitions on the our 8202 E4C.

Are these partitions Guest Partitions of IBM i or Hosted by VIOS?
Just curious...
