Pinned topic where is the download for powerVM lx86

‏2010-04-08T12:18:34Z |
Where is the page to download the rpms? We have installed a redhat lpar and would like to try getting this to work. And I go round in circles looking for a download.

    The links supplied took me to the page that says I can download after acceptance of the license agreement, but that link does not work.

    Any other suggestions??

    The link I provided was working back in 4/8, since then we have a newer version (1.4) and consolidatedall to this:

    https://review.boulder.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/preLogin.do?source=swg-systempave

    It aslso does have back levels (like Lx86 1.3.1) available for download.

    Again, this will require partnerworld id/pw to get in.

    My apology for all this changes.

    Just to confirm that you will need IBMID to access
    You can create one at the IBM site -->

    I work for an IBM customer, not a business partner, so I do not think I would qualify for partnerworld. I would be interested to know if customers can sign up for this.

    As well as posting here, I filled out the form on the IBM site to let them know about broken links. I do not know if it was a result the posting here, or the standard form, or just someone else doing their job... Whatever the reason, the link now works and I was able to download the software I needed.
    :-)

    Thanks to those that took the time to reply.

    Can anyone update this thread with the most current link to PowerVM lx86 for RHEL? I'm having some issues finding the application.
