How can the user determine the level of the Installation CDROM?


The following steps will determine the level of an installation CDROM in Maintenance Mode.
  1. Mount the CDROM over /SPOT:

  2. Change into the /tmp directory. Enter:
    cd /tmp
  3. Restore the lpp_name file from the CDROM. Enter:
    restore -xqvf /SPOT/usr/sys/inst.images/bos.rte.up ./lpp_name
  4. View the lpp_name file. Enter:
    cat ./lpp_name
    At the top of this file, the level of the fileset will be displayed. This also indicates the level of the CDROM. Whether or not the CDROM is a D5 or G5 is undeterminable unless the CDROM is marked.
