There's a good thread already in the forum here, certainly worth a read at the very least and it should give you some good pointers.

Good thansk

On AIX when you run
oslevel -s    (You get something like below)

I have an example of AIX71
7100- is the Operating System Version
02 - is the Technology Level (TL)
03 - Service Pack level (SP)
1334 - is year and week of release ( year 2013 and 34th week)

A set of SPs make a TL, if you are too low on OS, then you might need to jump TL and SP or if you are on latest TL, you just need to jump SP.

If you jump from TL00 SP01 to TL02 and SP03, it will update all the prerequisites TL and SP levels.

I hope this helps.

Perfect,thanks for help

I have made this simple script

http : // p5bweg-9

Just put it on a nim server, set a proxy to connect to internet.

then edit the script:

1- change the level of TL and SP you want.
2- Set the PATH you want to download packages.
In this example script you will download TL3 and SP3 for AIX 7.1. See below in red

suma -x -a RqType=TL -a RqName=7100-03 -a FilterML=7100-00 -a DLTarget="$AIXPackages"
suma -x -a RqType=SP -a RqName=7100-03-03 -a FilterML=7100-03 -a DLTarget="$AIXPackages"

Once it has finished it will create a nim resource (lpp_source)

How much time for updates: HP-UX and AIX.?

Wasn't sure how to word the title... sorry. In HP-UX and AIX specifically you apply a set of patches, not like solaris and linux where you update what's needed individually. So, for example, when going from patch level 1.1 to 1.8 is the time to complete exponential (1.1 -> 1.2 -> 1.3.. so on)... (1 Reply)
