Re: SDDPCM upgrade procedure for NPIV LPAR with boot disk from SAN2012-12-31T17:51:26Z in response to SystemAdminHi Delgado,
Thanks! for your reply I had a look at the installation/upgrade section of user guide. I am bit confused now, on my lpars which are using storage through npiv. I have host attachment. devices.fcp.disk.ibm.mpio.rte version 184.108.40.206 and as per sddpcm readme file for 220.127.116.11 it should be 18.104.22.168. now I am confused at the point would I have to remove the old version and then install the fresh or upgrade will work for it ? My question id do I have remove old sddpcm version( 22.214.171.124) and devices.fcp.disk.ibm.mpio.rte version 126.96.36.199 and then installing the latest or smit update_all will work for it?
Would appreciate if you can guide me here.
Thanks! in advance

Re: SDDPCM upgrade procedure for NPIV LPAR with boot disk from SAN2013-01-05T06:36:56Z in response to GurpreetSinghif the user's guide says "update" you do not remove anything.
special case is if you have an sddpcm fileset for a previous aix version (say 5 or 6), after an aix migration e.g., and do boot from san. That's where the user's guide directs you to ibm support to request special instructions.
test your update on a non-critical system in advance is my best advice. also an installp "preview" will give you some idea ahead of time.
