Pinned topic From where to get GPFS base package for Linux ?

‏2012-09-26T10:09:39Z |
Hi,
For the sake of learning I am trying to install GPFS on Linux machine but so for unable to find the GPFS package for Linux.

The package GPFS-3.3.0.20-x86_64-Linux.tar.gz Which I able to download from IBM Fix Central site contain update package only.It contain below files

gpfs.base-3.3.0-20.x86_64.update.rpm
gpfs.docs-3.3.0-20.noarch.rpm
gpfs.gpl-3.3.0-20.noarch.rpm
gpfs.gui-3.3.0-20.x86_64.rpm
gpfs.msg.en_US-3.3.0-20.noarch.rpm

From readme file and google searching it is revealed that gpfs-base package installation is required before installing the gpfs-base-update rpm. But I am unable to find that gpfse-base package.

Where can I get that gpfs base package , I need only for testing and learning?

    The GPFS service packs from Fix Central are indeed incomplete and require the base 3.X.0.0 package before they can be installed. If you are an end customer, you would need to arrange a GPFS trial through IBM sales channels. If you are a registered IBM business partner, the base package is avaiable from PartnerWorld.

    A public forum isn't really the right place to discuss internal IBM processes.  Please contact gpfs@us.ibm.com to discuss this.
