Problem Upgrading OS

Hi

I've just upgraded OS - using "Migration with nimadm". The Nim master is a Power 6 server, and the source is 6100-09-04-1441.

The migration was successful with a Power 6 - Nim client, but there was a problem with Power 5 - Nim client : the OS remained 6100-00-09-0920


Code:
icapp1:/]oslevel -s                 
6100-00-09-0920
icapp1:/]lppchk -v                  
lppchk:  The following filesets need to be installed or corrected to bring
         the system to a consistent state:

  bos.perf.gtools.procmon 6.1.9.0         (not installed; requisite fileset)
  bos.rte v=5, r<4                        (not installed; requisite fileset)

icapp1:/]instfix -i | grep ML 
    All filesets for 6100-00_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-01_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-02_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-03_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-04_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-05_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-06_AIX_ML were found.
    All filesets for 6.1.0.0_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-07_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-08_AIX_ML were found.
    Not all filesets for 6100-09_AIX_ML were found.
icapp1:/]oslevel -sl 6100-09-04-1441
Fileset                                 Actual Level       Service Pack Level
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
OpenGL.OpenGL_X.rte.soft                6.1.6.0            6.1.9.30       
X11.Dt.lib                              6.1.6.0            6.1.9.30       
X11.Dt.rte                              6.1.6.0            6.1.9.15       
bos.cifs_fs.rte                         6.1.6.0            6.1.9.30       
bos.loc.adt.iconv                       5.3.12.1           6.1.9.15       
bos.perf.gtools.procmon                 6.1.6.1            6.1.9.15

I've checked and figured out that: These filesets above didn't exist on the Power 6 - Nim client ( which was upgraded successfully ), and all filesets on Power 6 - Nim client existed on the Power 5 - Nim client ( which OS was still 6.1.0.0 ).

So I guess that there are some differences between Power 5 and Power 6. These remaining old filesets above are not upgraded and they made the OS remaining 6.1.0.0.

Is that right? And how to fix this ?

For license reasons you need to have the base level fileset included in the NIM resource (usually an lpp_source) even if you do not install that itself but a subsequent patch level.

If you do not need a certain fileset (some are just installed by default) you can deinstall it with installp -u.


I hope this helps.
