I'm about to update a VIOS server on a test/dev box from 126.96.36.199-FP-22.1 SP-02 to 188.8.131.52-FP26. Fix central gave me a bunch of ISO images to download.

01/14/13 02:19 47 U854314.v5.iso
01/14/13 02:19 47 U854314.v6.iso

Re: Confused over VIOS update contents2013-01-14T16:52:49ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.They are CD images. You can burn them to CDs and load the CDs one at a time in a physical optical drive in the VIOS. Otherwise, you could mount the images somewhere and copy the files into a directory on the VIOS.

Re: Confused over VIOS update contents2013-01-22T13:12:45ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.You an use a software like 7zip to extract their content (extract all images content for example to c:\VIO_FP, answer yes if it asks you to overwrite some files), then you can move the content of c:\VIO_FP\installp\ppc to a vio server and use it for update with updateios command.
