MediaSpin
LANSA Windows, LANSA on Linux and IBM i Software V14 SP1 DVD0332

* There will be no CD or DVD delivery of LANSA Client V13 SP1. LANSA Client V13 SP1 can be requested from your product vendor.

Notes regarding media spins:

  • Periodically, LANSA will produce a new spin of the LANSA media. A new spin will include the latest generally available EPCs, making it easier for customers to get to the latest EPC level automatically when they install or upgrade LANSA.
  • SPIN0330 delivers LANSA V13 SP2 and LANSA Linux V13 SP2 at EPC132900 level. SPIN0330 also provides an automatic install of EPC132800 for LANSA Integrator and EPC132100 for Visual LANSA Framework.
    Note:
    Installing or upgrading V13 SP2 from SPIN0330 requires IBM i 6.1 or later.
  • If you have already installed LANSA from an earlier spin (any version of LANSA), you should download and apply later EPCs for that version as they become generally available, rather than requesting the latest spin.
