Re: farmeware

Hi,

Firmware updates must be done with extreme care. Make sure you downloaded and created firmware for the correct system and as per the procedure mentioned in the ITRC page. Then boot with that tape. Interact IPL> N.

Thats it.

Re: farmeware

Hi Fadia, as the previous answer said, you have to have the correct firmware but after you have booted from the tape, you just have to answer "y" to one question and the rest is done for you
hope this helps

Re: farmeware

Hi,

When you create the firmware tape using the correct procedure, the tape becomes bootable!
(You are actually doing a "dd" the firmware bootable image to tape).
