Username and installed application on AIX.


I am looking to get a list of applications and corresponding user who installed the same (owner) on AIX host.

Can anyone confirm how can this information be retrieved? We can use "rpm" to get list of packages available on AIX, but is there a way to get the corresponding user as well for each of the installed packages?

Please confirm.

Thanks in advance.

lslpp is the main command for AIX to list installed software. Since most applications are installed by user, there really isn't a concept of looking for users that installed a particular software package. Some applications will run as different users.

installp (a tool to install packages on AIX) in default configuration can be run only by one user - root.
