Pinned topic Linux-toolkit 5.5 on Power6

‏2014-05-08T15:53:14Z |

Good evening,

I have a spare Power6-520 w. local disks, where I wantet to try the installation. I installed a new VIOS

>> ioslevel
2.2.1.0

and downloadet the latest RHEL (boot&DVD) SLES and the Toolkit 5.5.

I created a repository at the vios and mapped it into the LPAR, I think, I loose the device.

>> lsrep
Size(mb) Free(mb) Parent Pool         Parent Size      Parent Free
   12238     4640 rootvg                   139776            78592

Name                                    File Size Optical         Access
SLES_boot                                    3267 None            ro
linux_inst_tk                                 901 vtopt1          ro
rhel_65_boot                                  237 None            ro
rhel_65_dvd                                  3193 None            ro

 

When I try to boot my LPAR from one of these CD/DVDs (I also tried the DVD-Bay mapped into the LPAR)
