Question installp -C error: 'bosboot verification failed'

Hi, I'm a noob with AIX, can anybody help me solve this issue I'm stuck with on an 5.3 box.

bash# installp -C
0503-409 installp: bosboot verification starting...
0503-497 installp: An error occurred during bosboot verification processing.

Thanks.

I think we need an explanation of the history to this point:

Why are you attempting a clean up of the install packages?

What version of AIX were / are you running?

What is the RS6000 / LPAR?

Has the machine ever booted if yes is it booting now?

That will do for a start.

Hi thanks for replying,

bash-3.00# uname -a
AIX Perf_AIX53 3 5 0002887AD300

bash-3.00# uname -M
IBM,9115-505

bash-3.00# uname -p
powerpc

The machine has been booted a couple of times and was running OK for my purposes, there was an install in progress which was aborted, followed by a powerfailiure.

I needed a package to install but couldn't proceed due to the following error:

Installing XXX X.X for AIX
installp -Y -a -d /Downloads/Build/XXX.pkg all

0503-434 installp: There are incomplete installation operations
on the following filesets. Run installp -C to clean up
the previously failed installations before continuing.

ldap.server.java
ldap.server.rte
ldap.server.com
ldap.server.cfg
Error: Failed to install xxx


If you need any more output let me know, thanks.

Hi, thanks for asking, I reinstalled the OS on that machine, didn't figure out what went wrong though.
Thanks,
Siddharth.
