AIX 7.1 TL update -> only latest or one by one?

Hi,

I'm about to update a 7.1 box from 7100-00-03-1115 to the latest level 7100-02-01-1245. Question: do I have to install all steps between them or can I just download the latest level and do a update_all?

Personally, I go for all in one go - smitty update_all and run with preview activated to check for errors or other warnings.

Same here. In the overwhelming majority of cases this is safe, historically there were only a few TL/MLs that had problems.

I remember 5.3 ML8 (or ML9? not sure) having a problem if updating from ML3 - one had to update to ML7 first and then to do a second update to ML8. Similar from 4.1.1 to 4.1.4 IIRC. All other combinations i had to work with were without problems.

I hope this helps.
