TechTip: Installations and Upgrades Become Much Simpler with IBM i Network Install

Install IBM i over a Network File System (NFS) server using virtual optical media and enjoy the freedom of automation!

The IBM i Network Install process uses virtual optical devices within a Network File System (NFS) network for installation. With new enhancements in IBM i 6.1, users now have the ability to perform installations and operating system upgrades across their networks to other IBM i partitions. In addition, users can also load PTFs or restore data via a Virtual Media Image (VMI), all without having to manually FTP the data to additional partitions. This huge advance in the IBM i installation realm will provide users with even more efficiency and flexibility in managing today's complex system environments.


Why should you use IBM i Network Install? It's quick, easy, and efficient.
