Steps

  1. Extract the ISO file from the ZIP file.
     
  2. Make a Directory in the IFS (Integrated File System) on the iSeries:
    MKDIR('SHOWCASE')
     
  3. Using a mapped drive or iSeries Navigator, place the Showcase_ 9.x.x.x_Server.iso file into the SHOWCASE directory.
     
  4. Create a Virtual Optical Drive on iSeries. Note: In the Example Steps below I have extracted the ISO file to location: '/SHOWCASE/Showcase_ 9.1.0.0_Server.iso ' on the iSeries. NOTE: Replace Showcase_ 9.1.0.0_Server.iso with the name of the iso file you are using.
    1. CRTDEVOPT DEVD(OPTVRT01) RSRCNAME(*VRT) LCLINTNETA(*N) TEXT('Your virtual optical Device')
      If successful you will see a message like this:  Description for device OPTVRT01 created.     
       
    2. VRYCFG CFGOBJ(OPTVRT01) CFGTYPE(*DEV) STATUS(*ON)
      If successful you will see a message like this: Vary on completed for device OPTVRT01.
       
    3. CRTIMGCLG IMGCLG(SHOWCASE) DIR('/SHOWCASE') CRTDIR(*YES)
      If successful you will see a message like this: Image catalog SHOWCASE created in library QUSRSYS.
       
    4. ADDIMGCLGE IMGCLG(SHOWCASE) FROMFILE('/SHOWCASE/Showcase_9.1.0.0_Server.iso') TEXT('SC 9100 install image catalog') 
      If successful you will see a message like this: Image catalog entry added to image catalog SHOWCASE.     
       
    5. LODIMGCLG IMGCLG(SHOWCASE) DEV(OPTVRT01)
      If successful you will see a message like this: Image catalog SHOWCASE loaded in device OPTVRT01.
       
    6. To verify the mounting of the Virtual Optical Drive, run the following command.
      DSPOPTVOL(*All) DEV(OPTVRT01)
       
    7. To Start the ShowCase installation, run the command:
      LODRUN DEV(OPTVRT01)
