I’m trying to set up an image catalog for a V7R1 upgrade. My boss Joyce downloaded V7R1 software from the IBM Software entitlements web-site to one of our network drives. There are about 80 WinZip files. I think Joyce downloaded everything there was out there and figured I could sort it out! (I don’t think we need Websphere for the Commodore 64)
I located the “Media labels and their contents” document and whittled my list of files down to I_BASE_01, B_GROUP1_01 through 05, and two F_MULTI_NLV files. I then FTPd them to an IFS folder and added them to an image catalog on the iSeries partition we are using to test with. When I attempted to “verify” the image catalog, it failed with an OPT1325 (Optical volume format not recognized).
After calling IBM support, they said I needed to “extract” the WinZip files which I did. I was cruising along nicely with I_BASE01, BGROUP1_01, 02, and 03, but when I extracted 04 and 05, it created a bunch of folders (that look to be individual licensed program folders). In those folders are more folders, and there’s not an iso file to be found. Now I don’t know what to add to my image catalog. Can someone help me?
