Description

This install verifies the ISO's as virtual discs (IFS) on IBM i5 systems.

NOTE: This test requires knowledge of OS/400, iSeries partitioning, and an OS/400 service tools userid. Additionally, this test case needs clear instructions on what commands to execute inside os/400 to drive this test.

Steps To Reproduce

  1. FTP the disc iso's to the os400 system
  2. TODO outline steps to create optical volume, create images, and mount them
  3. Under the Change Network Server Desc (CHGNWSD) dialog in os/400, set the IPL source to *STMF
  4. Under the Change Network Server Desc (CHGNWSD) dialog in os/400, set the IPL stream file to the boot.iso for the mounted disc#1
  5. Under the Work with Configuration Status (WRKCFGSTS *NWS) dialog in os/400, VARY ON the partition under test
  6. Connect to the shared console on os/400. For example, to attach to a shared console for partition lp2 on i5-os400.test.redhat.com you would type: telnet i5-os400.test.redhat.com 2301
  7. Next you would select the appropriate Guest Partition console number for lp2. Finally, you would supply your OS/400 service tools userid to acquire the console.
  8. Proceed with an @everything all-lang installation
