Question

I use
40. Create distribution media
and create a combined DSLO image, (which contains all LPP and all PTFs), when doing my i5/OS upgrades.
I then upgrade from this image.
This shrinks the down window on OS upgrades, saves time and IPLs.

When creating the DSLO image, you need to select the LPP that you desire.
How will this work with YUM / 5733-OPS?

Paul

Bingo! This is the kind of stuff I'm talking about.

worth a tinker's darn is the one that came in that package!

Interesting. I thought the standard advice was to scrap everything in 5733-OPS, unless specifically needed for finicky software (with hard-coded paths or extremely version-dependent code).

And I'm *positive* the advice for folks who have never installed 5733-OPS is not to bother installing it now.
