NIM – LPP_SOURCE definition


Let’s start from AIX 7.2 base release LPP Source ,in order to define our new LPP_SOURCE resource:

root@nim01:/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL# nim -o define -t lpp_source -a server=master -a source=/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720000-FULL -a location=/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL lpp-aix720501-FULL
Preparing to copy install images (this will take several minutes)…

/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/RPMS/ppc/expect-5.42.1-3.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/RPMS/ppc/tcl-8.4.7-3.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/RPMS/ppc/tk-8.4.7-3.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/xlsmp.rte.4.1.2.0.I
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/xlsmp.aix61.rte.4.1.2.0.I


/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/Java7_64.sdk.7.0.0.320.I
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/Java7_64.jre.7.0.0.320.I
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/ICU4C.rte.7.2.0.0.I

Now checking for missing install images…

All required install images have been found. This lpp_source is now ready.

The newly created resource contains base release filesets, we need to update them to the desired version:

root@nim01:/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL# nim -o update -a packages=all -a source=/download/AIX/PTF/Aix-72-05-01 lpp-aix720501-FULL

/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/devices.pciex.df1060e214103404.7.2.0.0.I.1
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/rsct.msg.zh_TW.3.2.6.0.I
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/rsct.msg.zh_CN.3.2.6.0.I
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/rsct.msg.sk_SK.3.2.6.0.I


/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/devices.pciex.b315506714106104.rte.7.2.1.0.U
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/devices.pciex.b315506714101604.rte.7.2.1.0.U
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/devices.pciex.b31503101410b504.rte.7.2.1.0.U
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/devices.pciex.b3155067b3157365.rte.7.2.1.0.U
/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/devices.pciex.b3155067b3157265.rte.7.2.1.0.U

Resource creation and update tasks ended without errors, let’s run another check:

root@nim01:/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL# nim -o check lpp-aix720501-FULL
root@nim01:/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL#

Let’s remove eventual duplicate or superseded filesets:

root@nim01:/export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL# nim -o lppmgr -a lppmgr_flags=rub lpp-aix720501-FULL
lppmgr: Source table of contents location is /export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc/.toc
lppmgr: Building table of contents in /export/lpp_source/lpp-aix720501-FULL/installp/ppc ..
lppmgr: Building table of contents completed.
lppmgr: Generating duplicate list..
lppmgr: Generating base level duplicate list..

Results:
No filesets found that can be removed.

LPP_SOURCE resource is now ready to use.
