Can you upgrade the MQ Client component independently? Or is it part of the firmware?

huh??? I'm not sure this is correct - you can upgrade the firmware level as an admin of the box... are you suggesting you need to ship to the US if you want to upgrade the licensing!?

Hi,

I upgraded the Datapower firmware succesfully as the per the URL
https://www14.software.ibm.com/iwm/web/swg-datapower/index.shtml

We bought two datapower boxes one for test and one for production. The production box is not yet configuredas we are still testing.

Is it mandatory to configure the DP production box before 9 june.

Regards
Sanjiv

Every DP box that you do not want to ship back to IBM should be updated before June 9.

Thanks for the update,

We do not have proper support from IBM , I have been assigned a task to update the datapower from June 9th.

I am ware that it is possible to connect to the data power using a laptop and a serial cable and only upgrade the firmware.

Please provide any link on how to connect the DP with the serial cable and upload the new firmware.

Sanjiv
