LED 0088 on NIM install & Upgrade

RE: LED 0088 on NIM install & Upgrade
When performing a NIM restore + upgrade at the same time, you have to run no-prompt.
You do this my editing the bosinst.data file from the mksysb,
then you define and allocate that as a NIM resource.

One of the things you have to do is provide the target disks.
If the target disks do not exist, such as only one LUN when you thought there were two, the LPAR will HANG with LED 0088

You might see something like this on the console:
Cannot run a 64-bit program until the 64-bit
environment has been configured. See the system administrator.
eval /usr/lpp/bosinst/bi_io -c < /dev/console Erasing Disks Please wait... Approximate Elapsed time % tasks complete (in minutes) 0042-008 NIMstate: Request denied - Method_req Or you might see

but nothing more. It will just hang there indefinitely.

Give it 30 mins before you call it hung, but you might want to do an RTE install so you can go to the menus and verify you have the right disks listed.
