Hello all, I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction here.
We had a machine running AIX 6.1 that someone completely corrupted, so we decided to re-load it from media. I was able to boot into DVD media, select options for complete (destructive) install, AIX standard, etc. The... (0 Replies)

3. Shell Programming and Scripting
I have a text file containing output from a command that contains lots of escape/control characters that when viewed using vi or view, looks like jibberish. But when viewed using the cat command the output is formatted properly.
Is there any way to take the output from the cat... (7 Replies)

4. Shell Programming and Scripting
I have been having an extremely annoying problem. For the record, I am relatively new at this. I've only been working with unix-based OS's for roughly two years, mostly Xubuntu and some Kali. I am pretty familiar with the BASH language, as that's the default shell for debian. Now, I've made this... (16 Replies)

Hidey Ho Folks,
Looking to buy a pServer for playing around with the IBM side of things. Looked around for a bit and notice that there is a significant price gap for the used 570's (Single Units) vs the 520's and 550's that folks are selling. Curious what to watch out for in either case? And... (6 Replies)

I have a 9111-520 (p5 520) that I inherited, on which I want to install AIX 5.3 or possibly 6.1.
I've installed AIX many times, on a variety of platforms, but this one isn't working for me. What I can't seem to figure out is how to set it up to boot the CD. I'm assuming there is something I... (2 Replies)

I just changed from windows NT to XP and I am no longer able
to connect to my unix system. I used to use hyper terminal -- which acts as dumb terminal to my main frame unix system. I think one of the options used to be "direct to comX". This option isn't listed now. I use a serial port and the... (2 Replies)

removable-media(9P) Kernel Properties for Drivers removable-media(9P)
removable-media - removable media device property
A device that supports removable media--such as CDROM, JAZZ, and ZIP drives--and that supports power management and expects automatic
mounting of the device via the volume manager should export the boolean (zero length) property removable-media. This property enables the
system to make the power state of the device dependent on the power state of the frame buffer and monitor. See the power.conf(4) discussion
of the device-dependency-property entry for more information.
Devices that behave like removable devices (such as PC ATA cards, where the controller and media both are removed at the same time) should
also export this property.
Example 1: removable-media Entry
An example of a removable-media entry from the .conf file of a driver is shown below.
# This entry keeps removable media from being powered down unless
# the console framebuffer and monitor are powered down
Example 2: Implementation in attach()
Below is an example of how the entry above would be implemented in the attach(9E) function of the driver.
xxattach(dev_info_t *dip, ddi_attach_cmd_t cmd)
if (ddi_prop_create(DDI_DEV_T_NONE, dip, DDI_PROP_CANSLEEP,
"removable-media", NULL, 0)) != DDI_PROP_SUCCESS)
