Subject: RE: VIOS: Upgrading from 2.2.6.32 to 3.1.1.xx

Thank you. I'll study those.

I may have put off studying this past a desired deadline. I may postpone
the VIOS upgrades...

Subject: VIOS: Upgrading from 2.2.6.32 to 3.1.1.xx

I am reading the website at
[11]https://eur05.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ibm.com%2Fsupport%2Fpages%2Fvios-31-viosupgrade-process&amp;data=02%7C01%7C%7Cb86e3bc169884bfc4d4408d859b73086%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637357990608263906&amp;sdata=PeQf%2BmT5CLT6JNsMU3ddUA5aoZIARrZ69VqcKQny8OA%3D&amp;reserved=0
This is the first vios 2 to 3 upgrade I'll be doing.

We use internal disks in the system unit for VIOS.
Lpar vios1 has 1 disk mirrored to another. Lpar vios2 has 1 disk mirrored
to another.
All other partitions use internal disk in expansion units. One IBM i lpar
is the host for all that other disk.
Not anything too fancy here. No SAN, Live Partition Mobility, Shared
Storage Pool clusters, High Availability (outside of IBM i replication
software Quick-EDD), etc.

I'd like to get to the highest level currently supported but realize I may
have to step stone a bit.

My instructions from other times refer to updateios but from What I've
read that's not for 2.x.x.x to 3.x.x.x type upgrades. This leaves me with
the viosupgrade command.
Someone have some step by step instructions for this?
