Client

The source client must have enough space to store the Reinstall DVD Image Catalog data, which is a minimum of 5-10 DVD images. The disk space depends on the client size.

Target

The destination client must meet the following requirements:

  • The target system ASP must be the same size or larger than the source disk.

  • The target system must have the same IASP set and they must be the same size or larger than the source disk.

Proxy

There are no additional space requirements for the proxy.

Image Recover Client

The client computer that you use to recover the Reinstall DVD images must have enough space to store the images. The disk space depends on the client size and can be 21 GB or more.

VIOS or iHost

The VIOS or iHost must have enough space to store the all of the DVD images.

Network

  • TCP/IP services must be configured on the IBM i computer.

  • No firewall settings must be present between the IBM i computer and the proxy client computer.

  • IPv6 is not supported.

User/SYSTEM Startup Script

Use the following guidelines for the startup script that is specified in SYSTEM VALUE "QSTRUPPGM:

  • The name is QGPL/<Program name>.

  • The initial DR restore restores only *IBM QSYS2+QUSRSYS+QGPL. Any user startup scripts or programs that are executed from a script fail.

  • The start-up program that you specify for the system value QSTRUPPGM must exist in the system libraries (*IBM) or the system libraries with user data (QSYS2 or QUSRSYS or QGPL). If it does not, then the destination IBM i host does not properly start during the disaster recovery.
