Distributing software


Sometimes it is desirable to duplicate some or all of a system's programs, including the operating system, onto another system. You can also duplicate some or all of a logical partition's programs onto another logical partition. The distribution process is especially useful and convenient when your network is large and you want all the systems in your computing environment to be identical.

To do this with a minimum of effort and maximum benefits, you need to plan and consider the options available for distributing software products. You can use iSeries™ Navigator or central site distribution to distribute supported products. You can also use virtual images as distribution media.
