Upgrading and PTFs is easy with Image Catalogs, but doing the same process on multiple LPARs can take a lot of redundant time and space. Learn how to use the mature and established support of NFS to create a single image catalog that multiple LPARs can use.

Learning Objectives:
1. Brief discussion of image catalogs and NFS
2. How to set up NFS with real world examples
3. Networking requirements and guidelines
