As part of the IBM PowerVC work I've been doing there is something extra preperation work that needs to be done, namely the update of the Hardware Management Console and VIO Server.
When the code is released you will need to be at:
So when you update your HMC, I recommend you take a look at this article as it will give you some tips on what you need to do:
Once that update is complete, you can move onto the VIO Server, of which there are a number of ways you can update them. In my case I have the iso mounted through a loop and that filesystem is then NFS served out:
[root] # loopmount -i /sha
Login to you VIOS and mount the NFS and start the install:
[padmin] $ mount <nfs-server>:/cdrom /mnt
[padmin] $ updateios -commit
All updates have been committed.
[padmin] $ updateios -dev /mnt -install -accept
Once complete perform a reboot and when its back up, just do your normal checks to ensure all the packages are applied
[padmin] $ ioslevel
[padmin] $ oem_setup_env
# instfix -i |grep ML
