Suse forum for system Z. I'm looking to install SLES9 on a 7060-H30 (its a s/390 machine that pre-dates Z series) it is a 31-bit machine.

I'm looking for the old SLES9 installation media/iso.

Can anyone assist?

Hello asysad,

Wow, a fan :-)

Hello aysad,

You can download the ISO's from here :
ftp://support-ftp.suse.com/out/SLES9-s390.tar.gz

I would not wait too long with that, otherwise a clean-up policy on our FTP server may delete this again :D

Enjoy !!
Hans

PS: Malcolm, thanks a lot for pointing this out !

For what it is worth, I too downloaded it and calculated the following
md5sum, just for comparison purposes:

installed and running.

IPL'd off of SP4 CD1 from support element, used basic installer in Operating System messages, pointed to NFS Installation source on another PC Linux created with this basic method: https://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/15522.html

YaST wanted both SP4 CD1&2 as well as the original CD1 for some things (it might have gone to the original CD2 also, I can't recall). Anyhow, what is installed now is essentially SP4 in minimal configuration.

Thanks again all for your help!

just to be clear, this was for test/evaluation/proof-of-concept/procedure development purposes. I have de-installed the software as per the SuSE's Intellectual Property license and will pursue a full purchase of the product from sales if I intend to run it for a longer duration at some point.

Again, thanks to all for your collective assistance. I'm planning to write up all the details of the procedure developed bare metal -> SLES9 login if anyone is interested.

I'll be surprised if SUSE will/can sell you a license for an old,
unsupported release of SLES9.

I'd certainly be interested. In the past I would have suggested
submitting it as a Cool Solutions article but SUSE don't
currently award credits for their equivalent communities
site.

Snap! I also get

dc010329631b7d68ae2315f9d2ad2a54

as the MD5 checksum.

For completeness I also generated SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:

SHA1: 11e6a3118587b07e3dafc5525938bdb1bfc15b16
SHA256: 6ff8e5c39061b5d7417b31a3ff57a8c6d6b4dbe01d07ea2e6d 3f31957a93683b

Given that we're generating these checksums (as opposed to being
officially published by SUSE) I'd be more inclined to check that the MD5
checksums of the individual files within the archive match those which
were noted and linked to[1] in the asysad's edited web post[2]. Which
they do!

HTH.
