Need FC's for all my hardware


        My customer purchased several RISCs that I would like to upgrade.
        Since they are not in the system, I believe I will need to enter
        them in by hand.  Can you help get the feature codes for all my
        hardware ?

Action: Researched item.  There are two ways to proceed with system

        We could look at system components by hand (IE - commands
        like 'lsdev' and 'lscfg'), search for feature codes, and then
        attempt to reconfigure a similar system in the configurator.
        This might work, but we might not find all the feature codes for
        older/discontinued features.  We should do the following...

        He should create a topology diskette via diagnostics and
        service aids --> product topology menu selections.  This utility
        will create a diskette that can be read into the mainframe
        database that will allow one to upgrade/MES the existing

        The product topology program creates the information about the
        RS/6000s in /etc/lpp/diagnostics/data directory.  This should
        also appear on the diskette and can be viewed by the command:

        cpio -itv \< /dev/fd0

        Topology diskettes in the U.S. are mailed to:

        Updates to the system occur by the evening on the day of
        receipt.  These go into the MRDB database in Lexington where
        they are accessible by AAS for comparison/creation.
