OK, I have an AIX 5.3 tl12 sp2 which is going to be upgrade or migrated to AIX 6.1. I have attached the DVD1 from AIX 6.1 in the virtual optical device (see image).

I start LPAR from SMS, boot from the DVD, it began the migration very well but at the end it asked me to insert the volume 2 of AIX 6.1 and I wasn't be able to continue. Of course the migration didn't work, it does not even boot the LPAR after the migration. My question is? How can I use the two DVDs of AIX 6.1 in this migration using virtual optival devices?

I know I would unistall this packages it needs from the 2nd DVD but I don't want to touch nothing in this rootvg.
ALso, I could migrate this LPAR to AIX 6.1 from NIM, but I want to make it using virtual devices (As always :-))
