IY17981 fix required for aix 4.3.3 to aix 5L migration but not found


redbook documentation is telling that IY17981 fix is required for aix 4.3.3 to aix 5L migration. But there is no mention about that fix in any ML installation packages.
- My system is ML11 :
oslevel –r

- But xlC.rte is on wrong version :
lslpp -L xlC.rte
xlC.rte C C Set ++ Runtime

- and documentation is saying :
If the xlc.rte level is earlier than 5.0.2.x, you must apply APAR
IY17981 before migrating to AIX 5.3. Without APAR IY17981 installed, the
migrated system might fail to boot

- in aix package :
IY17983 does exist, but IY17981 does not.

Thanks if you have any idee.

This might be because the Fix is only needed for the upgrade to AIX5L. You should still be able to search for it and download it on Fix Central (see the links page at the pinned threads of this forum).

I hope this helps.

ty for your reply.
No, only ML 11 is available on fixcentral. I have actually a problem with ML7 that isn't correctly installed. But I don t manage to apply it again correctly with the aix4.3.3 ML11 all inclusive fixpack :

instfix -i | grep ML
Not all filesets for 4330-07_AIX_ML were found.

Thanks for any other idea.
