I have a iSeries that I am using for learning. Because it is for learning, I continually mess it up and end up having to reinstall the OS. This is a highly time consuming process, mainly because I have to babysit the machine as it asks for more disks (9+). I'm trying to figure out a more speedy process to reinstall the OS. This is my current approach:
- Reinstall LMC (Optical media)
- Reinstall OS (Optical media)
- Install minimal LICPGMs (QSYS, etc.)
- Create image catalog, load from IFS
- Install remaining LICPGM
Running 7.2 of a 8203-E4A with DVD and Tape drives. Is there a faster way?
