Installing server software and features from the current Service DVD-ROM

To install the latest service updates for InfoPrint Manager using the InfoPrint installer GUI and the latest Service DVD-ROM, do this:
  1. Log into the AIX system as root.
  2. Insert the InfoPrint Manager Service DVD-ROM into the DVD-ROM drive.
  3. Make sure that no jobs are currently active on this server (any active jobs will be interrupted by the service process).
  4. Open a terminal window.
    If you are using CDE, you can open a terminal window by clicking on the terminal icon contained on the front panel. The front panel is the task bar that appears at the bottom of the screen. By default, the terminal icon is contained in a menu above the text editor icon that appears on the front panel.
  5. Follow these steps:
    1. Type this on the AIX command line: smit cdrfs or smitty cdrfs (for the ASCII version).
    2. Select Add a CDROM File System from the list of choices presented.
    3. Click List and select your DVD-ROM device name (cd0, for example).
    4. Type this in the MOUNT POINT field: /cdrom.
    5. Click OK. The running person will raise their arms to indicate success. If the running person instead falls down and you see crfs: 0506-909 /cdrom file system already exists, do not interpret this as a failure. The existing /cdrom file system should be usable.
    6. Press the F12 key to exit SMIT.
  6. Type this at the command line: mount /cdrom.
At this point, you are ready to begin following the directions provided in Applying service.
