Can someone give some insight on where the executable 'oslevel' reads its
information;  when executed with no parameters It still shows the prior
release, with a (-g) option its shows correct versions.

You have filesets that are backlevel that prevent the system from being
4.3.3.0.  Run 'oslevel -l' to find out which ones.  Then either uninstall them
if you don't need them, or update them if you do.

Thanks Dwight,

It looks like the xlC.aix43.rte is what's causing the oslevel to read
4.3.2.0, Do you know if this is on the bos cd volumes that ship with AIX or
is it found on the compiler set?

No, it's thee iforls packages, those are a known defect in the initial
AIX 4.3.3 packaging, you'll have to upgradem them manully using smitty
installp

 No, it doesn't. The ifor_ls packages downgrade the level

They should be:

ifor_ls.base.cli   4.3.3.0   License Use Management Runtime Code
ifor_ls.base.gui   4.3.3.0   License Use Management Runtime GUI

Quote:> 4.3.2.0, Do you know if this is on the bos cd volumes that ship with AIX or

'xlC.aix43.rte   4.0.2.1' is on CD#1 of AIX 4.3.3 distribution set.

Should not interfere with 'oslevel' definitions.

oslevel is a ksh script.  You can find out everything it does with more(1)

It gets its information from instfix.

They say never to buy a "0" release of software.
Windows 2000 has 3 of 'em.

 
 
 

1. oslevel - wrong output !!!!!

I had a system  with AIX 4.3.2.
I inserted a new disk and an AIX 4.3.3 CD and
then i type

alt_disk_install -C -b update_all -l /dev/cd0 hdisknew

After 2 hours the new disk was ready.
After a reboot the new systemdisk was active.
After this i upgraded the rest form the installation media.

I transfered the Patches from 4.3.3.0 to 4.3.3.25 from
the internet and installed them.

Reboot

There were no problems but if i try the command oslevel there was
the old output -> 4.3.2.0

In a fewer version there were Problems with this that the
ifor_ls.compat.cli was not the right.

But in this case i believe that it is the right:


  ifor_ls.compat.cli        4.3.3.25    C    License Use Management
  ifor_ls.compat.gui        4.3.3.25    C    License Use Management

I believe the problem is that the maintenance level is still at 4.3.2


Fileset                                 Actual Level        Maintenance
Level
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

bos.64bit                               4.3.3.25            4.3.2.0
bos.INed                                4.3.3.0             4.3.2.0
bos.acct                                4.3.3.25            4.3.2.0
bos.adt.base                            4.3.3.25            4.3.2.0
bos.adt.debug                           4.3.3.25            4.3.2.0
bos.adt.graphics                        4.3.3.25            4.3.2.0
bos.adt.include                         4.3.3.25            4.3.2.0

u.s.w

What can i do to get the right output from oslevel ??????????

Any ideas

Regards
