This is true for Linux on Z.   Not for z/OS.

**CAUTION EXTERNAL EMAIL**

We are setting up a z/Next mainframe on a greenfield site and want to be able to install z/OS from a DVD.
Back in 2016, Mark Post said..
“Coming soon will be the ability to IPL _and_ install directly from the HMC DVD drive. It'll be a slow as !@$$ but it won't require an installation server somewhere. You'll still need to connect _into_ the system over the network to complete the install (via SSH or VNC) of course. Even that could be avoided if you set up a custom DVD that points to an autoinst.xml file on the DVD itself and use VNC as the installation method. Completely unattended install without a net. :)”

Has ‘soon’ arrived yet? Or are we still looking at using a Customised Offering Driver?

Regards and thanks
Paul
