When No Partitions:

The procedure for doing this follows:
1.Do a D Manual IPL using a SAVSYS, full system save, or LIC Install CD.
2.The first menu will give an Option 1 to Install LIC, and Option 2 to use DST. Select Option 1.
3.The Install LIC menu will provide 5 options. Select Option 2 to Install Licensed Internal Code and Initialize System.

Note: Data still remains on the disk units until the following steps are completed.
4.After the installation of LIC is complete, the system will IPL to the DST primary menu (IPL or Install the System).
5.Configure all the disk drives by adding them into system ASP (ASP 1). This writes zeroes on the disk drives so only the LIC is loaded.

a Select Option 3 - Use DST.
b Work with Disk Units.
c Work with Disk Configuration.
d Work with ASP Configuration.
e Add units to ASPs.
f Type 1 in front of all the available units.

Note: If using the LIC Install CD (I_Base) to install LIC, the default password for QSECOFR will be uppercase QSECOFR.
6.When that is complete, power off the system by pressing the power button two times.
The system is clean and ready to go.
