Is the network install only for lpars on the same box?
Also, if you are doing an OS upgrade on one lpar and then have to
load/apply ptf's later and it's during a downtime weekend and the status
of the other lpars may be down I don't think I could do this because the
network install would kind of like the other lpars to be up, eh?
I kind of half heartedly tried it, but I was kind of hung up on the cross
box support and ran into a few snags so I fell back into what I was

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: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v7r1m0/topic/rzahc/rzahcprepareinstdevmedia.htm Jim Oberholtzer Chief Technical Architect Agile Technology Architects On 2/14/2013 4:16 PM, Jim Essinger wrote:> Kirk,
