Upgrade AIX/ Install cdrom on 520h AIX 3.2.5

Post by yellow » Thu, 23 Nov 2000 04:00:00



Hi,

I would like to upgrade my AIX-level on a model 520h RS/6000 running AIX
3.2.5. (32MB ram 3 GB Harddisk) I'am trying to find out if it is possible to
run AIX 4.2.x or AIX 4.3.x on a model 520h. Next to this I would like know
if there are experiences with building a none IBM-cdrom into this machine.

Hello,

I myself own a 32H wich is the smaller version of your 520 but with the same
cpu.
I'm running AIX 4.3.3 on the system without any problems.
The non-IBM cdrom drive could be a problem.
Sometimes OEM-cdrom drives do work on a live system but you can't boot from
them.
Easy way to find out: Turn key to Service load the 4.3.x cdrom and power the
system on. If you got the diagnostics screen than the system booted up from
disk. If you get the Installationscreen the system booted from cd.

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem: AIX4.1 is installed on a 520H and the
non-IBM-cdrom drive works fine. But every time I try to boot from original
AIX4.3.2 installation CD with key to service mode I end up in the
diagnostic-screen. What options do I have?

Thanks.
