I have HMC V7R126.96.36.199 and doing a upgrade to V7R188.8.131.52 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 FTP2012-10-16T17:53:40Z in response to SystemAdminI 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.
