A new dillema for someome to help solve for me

First of all thanks to the m8 who sent me the info on extracting the files I needed using winrar. Now here is the real problem
Thanks for that, but here is a TRUE Challenge

How do I flash the tape drive with the new firmware, as if you read the doc that comes with this bin file, u need to issue certain AIX commands to flash the firmware upgrade hmm maby u can get an AIX shell to run under windows, can someone please check this out for me.

I will need the following files to run under the shell

AIX command:

lscfg -vl rmt0

If the Z1 field is 5xxx then do the following AIX command:
cp IBM4326N.30303131.5ALL /etc/microcode/IBM4326N.30303131.5ALL

Install microcode using AIX Diagnostics.

  • Make sure you are signed on as root

  • Issue the AIX command:
    diag

  • Press enter on the initial diagnostic screen

  • Select the diagnostic service aid
    (How this is selected will vary by AIX level)

  • Select microcode download
    (This will be down several screens)

Note: When you are in the diagnostics and the diagnostics ask if you have the microcode on diskette reply No and the
microcode will be loaded from the /etc/microcode file you copied from /tmp/4mm_tape directory.

  • Follow the diagnostic instructions for completing the
    microcode download.

  • When the download completes there is no need to recycle
    the system or the tape drive as the microcode is now active
    in the drive.
