Thanks! I had been pulling my hair out trying to figure out which links I needed to follow on IBM's site. Not a particularly user friendly site...

All the filesets you mention are pretty old: "....0.30" indicates that these are from "maintenance/technical level" 3 (see https://www.unix.com/aix/75964-aix-5-... for an explanation what the term maintenance [or technical] level means). Probably your machine needs some software update anyway?

If so, you find a detailed explanation about how to determine the maintenance level in the pinned Thread at the top of this forum ("AIX bits and pieces"). Please report back your exact OS level.

I hope this helps.

It also depends on what you are tryin got install

if you just want the java you do not need all the java development stuff
some time when you select this more filessets are required to go with this.

List the files here and I will let you know what you need.

Geting files upgrades and filesets are now made easy using SUMA
try smitty suma for the config of this
