RE: HMC network install of i5OS V7R1 from DSLO image, can't fine load source B2003110



fixed

Larry,

Thanks for all the help and tips.

I had two issues,
1) alt restart device wasn't tagged.
2) chsysstate - 1 extra space after serverdir/ V7R1OSPTF

Now that I have the setup and syntax correct, chsystate was successful.
I'm now trying to the same to a hosted client partition, error B2004158
This is my first attempt of this for a client partition, not sure if this is possible?
I followed Pete Massiello PDF "Building Virtual IBM i partitions on hosted IBM i."
However, instead of loading from actual medial, trying a network install.
Is this possible?
The client doesn't have an actual Ethernet, so no actual IP.

chsysstate -o on -k manual -m Server-8205-E6C-SN105815R -n Pencor08 DSLO -i d -f Pencor08 DSLO -r lpar --ip 10.5.23.8 --netmask 255.255.255.0 --gateway 10.5.23.6 --serverip 10.5.23.6 --serverdir /V7R1OSPTF --duplex auto --mtu 1500

Paul,

Did the email client or the list remove characters after Pencor07?
Otherwise you have too many parameters there. Also it appears there is an extra space after the / in / OSV7.... Again could be an email client
thing.

Can you confirm that the line description used for the NFS Host is configured for 1500 byte or smaller frames?

Can you confirm that the NFS and TFTP servers are in fact running on the Host.

Finally can you confirm that profile "Pencor07(some missing character)Upgrade" has the appropriate Ethernet line tagged as the Alternate Restart Device?

Successfully completed similar process earlier this year.
Since HMC and LPAR both updated.
Redid prereqs several times.
I don't think the HMC is detecting the image catalog, mounted and
ready .
