Updating the Virtual I/O Server to V1.2

Do not use the V1.2 install media that has been sent out to many customers if you are planning to use the command updateios. The Virtual I/O Server optical media is labeled LCD4-7462-04. It's a DVD that contains the latest filesets and can be used for fresh installs.
However, using updateios with the install media will produce a partially updated VIO server. When you issue the ioslevel command, it will still report the old level, even though the updateios command appeared to complete successfully.
It is important that you use the Fix Pack 7 code on the web, or order an update CD, to perform the upgrade on an existing Virtual I/O server.
