Re: booting from DVD.



fixed

> Can I see those?

Since you asked :-)

** Create 20GB Repository for images:

mkrep -sp rootvg -size 20G

FTP Up any images you need. You may need to do 1 or 2 at a time or you'll run out of space for padmin user. FTP to VIOS using padmin user puts them in /home/padmin

mkvopt -name <image.name> -file /home/padmin/<image.name> -ro

** Then remove it from padmin's directory to get space back.

rm /home/padmin/<image.name>

** Show all images in said repository:

lsrep

***Make a file backed optical drive vtopt0 attached to vhost0
***Note that vtopt0 is name you make up. *I* usually match to the vhostN number. vhost0 is the vscsi connection for the desired partition.

mkvdev -fbo -dev vtopt0 -vadapter vhost0

** Load an image into a virtual optical.
** Note you can load the SAME image to any number of vtoptN devices.

loadopt -disk <image.name> -vtd vtopt0

** Unload an image: (Whatever is in there is unloaded.)

unloadopt -vtd vtopt0

You repeat the loadopt/unloadopt as each image is needed by the guest partition.
