Sorry for the jargon here is a link to the steps.

Obtain the latest version of Licensed Internal Code (LIC) which will be on the IBASE media, which you are entitled to since you have software support.

Once you have that in hand follow the steps in this link.
Yes you can use virtual media, since it sounds like a hosted system.

Once you perform those steps select option 1. Perform an IPL from the IPL or Install the System menu.

Change the IPL side to B and then install the latest PTFs.

Here is what I would do.
Pull down the latest respin and slip LIC.
Then install the latest groups.
That should prevent the normal pitfalls of jumping TRs when applying the latest PTFs.

Monty -

I appreciate your input, but can you perhaps give me the less technical description for this?

Although I have a lots of general IBM i system and OS knowledge, my primary job is supporting the JDE applications / programming, not system administration and hardware support.

I don't have a handle on the jargon you used above...

Best Regards,
