Release identifier for i 7.3

Distribution media labels indicate the release and modification level in a format that is different from what appears on displays during installation.

Media type identifiers

Labels on the distribution media that are used for installation have unique identifiers. Media type identifiers are located on the center of the label. These identifiers help you determine when to use each media volume.

When you are ready to install your new software, arrange the media in this order:

  1. Licensed Machine Code - I_BASE_01

    This language independent Licensed Machine Code (Licensed Internal Code) supports all language versions. The Licensed Machine Code is part of the standard set of media.

  2. Multiple language version media - B_GROUPx_nn

    This media contains the multiple language versions of the operating system, IBM-supplied libraries, no charge options, no-charge licensed programs, and keyed products. For the media identifier string B_GROUPx_nn, x indicates the language group and nn indicates a sequence number. See Feature codes for language version for a list of languages that are in each group.


    This media contains some additional programs, products, single licensed programs, or options.

  4. N29xx_01 Secondary Language Media

    This media contains only language objects for the indicated secondary language. For secondary language media, the value for 29xx is the feature code of the secondary language as used for installation.

  1. Keep all of your distribution media. You might need them for recovery procedures.
  2. You might receive additional media volumes that do not conform to these descriptions. Examples include media that contain PRPQs or media for IBM i Access Family products that are installed on workstations. Also, IBM Business Partners might label the media differently.
  3. Julian dates are shown in the form yddd. The y is the last digit of the year (0 through 9), and ddd is the day of the year (0 through 366). For example, the Julian date for 6 April 2014 would be shown as 4096 because 06 April is the 96th day of the year 2014.
