RE: Upgrading R&D LPAR from V6R1 to V7R1 TR7



fixed

Paul,

If you want a copy of the presentation, send me an email (just remove the -ml) from my address and that goes to my regular email address and I have a step by step guide to building virtual LPARs hosted by IBM i.

Reviewing the docs.
Where can I find Pete's Webinar?

I have many clients that have one physical partition and all the "production" partitions are run as guest partitions on the "primary" meaning the only partition with actual hardware. Easy to set up, easy to maintain.
There are a couple of best practice things to do but it's easy. In fact I'm building a new hosted/guest partition for a customer right now.

Pete's Webinar went through most of the pre-req's and best practice items.

Rob,

Did you, or anyone, ever experiment with a "guest partition"

the "partition within a partition" is called a guest partition.
The one link is a 6.1 but it does kind of take you through it step-by-step.
Of course, Pete Massieola(sp) did a webinar on this not too long ago and that would be worthwhile finding.

IBM finally got back to me about my V7R1 upgrade issues, using a combined DSLO image.
My image was missing a PTF Si50242.

I need to recreate my DSLO image, however, I don't have a partition with a clean QGPL and QUSRSYS.
I read once that you can create a partition within a partition.
I have 3 choices.
1) Scratch install my test partition where I originally created the image, (I really don't want to do this, lose all the configuration)
2) Try and cleanup QGPL and QUSRSYS, so they appear like what a scratch install would produce.
3) Create a new partition for the DSLO image from a "hosted" partition.
(Not sure of the complexity of this)

Any tips on creating a new combined (OS and all PTFs) DSLO V7R1 image

"*PGM objects for product 5770DE1 option 2 release V7R1M0 not restored."

The Installation Exit Program QZXMMRMX for the feature [5770-DE1-02] apparently failed due to a request to DROP PROCEDURE, DROP FUNCTION, or DROP ROUTINE having been prevented by a mismatched file definition [record format] for the SYSROUTINES file in QSYS2 as compared to the level of the SQL run-time code used to effect the DROP activity; i.e. an effective level-check. The columns that define that file apparently are either down-level or up-level to the code, such that required changes [ALTER] to the SQL catalog TABLE files in the Extended Base Option either were _not applied_ whereas the OS SQL run-time code had been updated or [less likely] were _applied_ whereas the OS SQL run-time code had not been updated [i.e.
what should be the pre-requisite PTFs had not been applied, or had been removed; and thus why this scenario is less likely].

Surely that implies a maintenance\PTF level-mismatch between the
OPTION(01) of the OS and the *OPSYS itself. As I had alluded in a prior reply, given this is an install from a DSLO, my supposition is that the DSLO image was created from a system on which the /background/ processing used to effect the updates to the OPTION(01) were not yet applied; likely due to a failure of the post-PTF-apply to complete the effective upgrade activity per some errors [likely logged in a system job and left unreported to QSYSOPR or QHST, not as an impromptu message nor as either of an /install/ message nor a /PTF/ message as something obvious to look for] or due to the _loss_ of the request which should have implemented the required upgrade activity.
While a timing issue versus a loss is possible, that is very unlikely.
