you can use devalias (nvalias) to create friendly names for the
various operating systems:
nvalias solaris9 disk:d

of "disk:d". setting auto-boot? to false will allow the user to choose
each time the machine is powered on. otherwise just set boot-device to
the default operating system.

My question is, taking the latest AIX C++ 6.0 compiled binary on a 5.2
version and running it on an older version AIX OS such n such as 3.2 to a
4.1 version, will there be any complications for that binary to execute? Is
so, can you please give me some examples?
Appreciate any input you can give me.
