HMC upgrades

Hey!!!

Has anyone done HMC patch installation remotely? I would love to know if that would be possible. I have been doing through CD/DVD but hate to do the additional work of finding someone in the DC and sending him the CD's.

I have seen the option to supply remote site. can that be helpful?

Thanks in advance

I've used it to install patches on my HMC a couple of times. You just give it the remote site, the full path to the zip file (/export/hmc/MH01128.zip) and your login and password.

Hey homeyjoe

I believe the remote system needs to have ftp enabled. Is it so? Did you have to do that or just a remote system with normal login will work?

Thanks

Yes - ftp has to be enabled on the remote system.
