OS Patches installed but they seem as not installed

Hello everyone:

I've installed an OS patch into AIX 6.1 by running the following command:
Code:
instfix -d /tmp/6100-02-03 -k "IZ41855"

however it seem not installed
Code:
instfix -i  -k "IZ41855"
 There was no data for IZ41855 in the fix database.

what am I doing wrong?

It seems AIX 6.1 does not need the fix :-) not sure

Did you get any messages when running the instfix -d /tmp/6100-02-03 -k "IZ41855"?
When you run it again, is there an error message?

In your other thread I answered, that it might be an easier option to have your AIX updated to the latest level instead. This is no option?

AIX 6.1 will - depending on the exact version - need this fix or another.

Searching for the fix (mprotect() returns ENOMEM for text segment in 32 bit) at the IBM site i found three different available fixes for various 6.1 versions:

6100 TL2 SP3 6100-02-03-0909 IZ41855 bos.mp64 6.1.2.3
6100 TL3 6100-03 IZ39699 bos.mp64 6.1.3.0
6100 TL4 6100-04 IZ39665 bos.mp64 6.1.4.0

It may well be that you had the wrong fix for your APAR. Check with "oslevel -s" (or the output of "instfix -i") to find out which version exactly you are on and use the respective fix.

I hope this helps.

according oslevel the version is 6100-00-01-0748, how could I upgrade the AIX version?
