Create a SPOT from the AIX 5.2 media that you do have and use NIM to upgrade the SPOT from downloaded TL10 bff files.

Hi,
I assume you have a mksysb image (defined as NIM resource)
to create your new system from.

You can use the same mksysb image to create your SPOT.
Simply enter 'smit nim_mkres', select 'spot',
fill out the gaps  (souce of install images : [your mksysb]) and go!

You can also issue:
nim -o define -t spot -a server=[nim_server] \-a location=[target-dir_of_spot] -a source=[your_mksysb_nim_res] \[name_of_spot]

Your NIM server should already be on 5.2 TL10!

Good Luck!

Hi,
sure you can.
It's always best to have the NIM server at the highest possible level, regardless of what the client levels might be.

OK, in my first post I should have written
'Your NIM server should already be on 5.2 TL10 or higher'
Sorry!
