I have HMC V7R220.127.116.11 and doing a upgrade to V7R18.104.22.168 from the ISOs downloaded on a FTP server from IBM.
I'm sure that ftp server working ok and it is same ftp server from where we have done System firmware upgrade on the same frame successfully. But during HMC upgrade it doesn't go after the message " offloading the image from the server.." even waiting for hours.
Is there anything I'm missing or something horribly wrong with HMC upgrade process?

Re: HMC upgrade via FTP2012-10-16T17:53:40ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I have used this OK in the past.
Have you firewall problems or ulimit and truncated files?
But now I use System Director - a few clicks and it does everything for you.
Highly recommended these days.
