Through the HMC use the System Console to do upgrade. Works exactly as DSP01 from Twinax.
To connect to a 5250 console locally from an active logical partition, complete the following steps:
1. In the navigation area, expand Systems Management.
2. Select Servers, and select the server with the IBM i logical partition that you want to work with.
3. In the contents area, right-click on the logical partition and choose from the following options:
v Open dedicated 5250 console: If you select this option, other users are not able to share the session
v Open shared 5250 console: If you select this option, others can share this session with you. For
example, you could start a backup that might take several hours, and then either you or someone
else can manage it from another workstation in your office or from home.
4. If you selected Open shared 5250 console, you must enter a session key that can be used by another
user with another 5250 emulator. If you are the first user, the session key is entered twice to verify
accuracy. You must include a numeric digit in the key. You might want to describe the task that you
are performing, for example, backup1key. With this option, you can do the following operations:
v Share a console session
v See the same logical partition console windows
v Navigate each of the logical partition console windows
If you’re not that fond of hanging around in noisy server rooms, configure a Client Access session so you open the console on your PC.

Doesn’t hurt to bookmark the HMC in your browser either (https://[HMC IP address]/preloginmonitor/index.jsp)
