Adding UpdateXpress System Packs

Follow these steps to add IBM UpdateXpress System Packs (UXSPs) to the source tree.


  1. Download the UpdateXpress System Pack for the desired machine type and operating system combination into the source tree in the updates\uxsp directory. When downloading multiple UXSPs for multiple machine types, place them all in this directory. When the UXSP installer runs, it automatically selects the appropriate files. If you are prompted to overwrite existing files, click OK.
    Note: Do not change the names of any UXSP files or make any changes to the case (uppercase and lowercase) of the letters. Changing the file name or case can cause the UXSP deployment to fail.
  2. If you are using UXSP for this deployment, set the UpdateXpress environment variable under the NOS Installation Settings section in the scenario .ini file you are using for this deployment to Yes. See the following example.
    [NOS Installation Settings]  


The UXSP will be installed after the operating system is installed. You can check the results of the UXSP installation in the Toolkit log file: C:\IBM_Support\IBM_WinPEToolkit.log.
