Not at all! I have one customer, admittedly with good network infrastructure, where I've done network installs from another city!

There we keep one LPAR JUST for hosting images and network install stuff. That way we know it will be up when we need it and we can update that one during the day as needed.

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
comfortable with.
