Error Very Basic Question

How to know if my AIX 5.2 is running at 64bits?

Check your man page for the bootinfo command (I couldn't find a man page on the web to double check other info I found - see the -K option to bootinfo)

isainfo command

I'd point you to the bootinfo command too, but I hope it is understood by the community when I say I won't deem you worth an answer because of your nickname (for the non-german-speaking: "Totenkopf"=skull) and the political implications it raises.

skull 1939 - not politically friendly.

Agreed. I am going to change the username Totenkopf1939 to "GermanSkull".
