If one is using fixdist (with a database refreshed as of today), and
- from the first menu "Base Maintenance Levels", AIX 4330-04
Recommended Maintenance for AIX 433
- from the first menu "Generally Available Fixes", APAR IY11202 ("AIX
4330-04 recommended maintenance for aix 4.3"), selecting 18.104.22.168.03 as
the current AIX level,
you get two different sets of updates to install.
For example: for the fileset bos.up, the APAR version downloads
4.3.3.(14,15,16, and 21; so 21 is the highest level)
while the Base Maintenance Level only downloads 22.214.171.124.
Which one is right? If someone asks "are you at maintenance level
04?", they're thinking that (for example) bos.up is at a certain level,
and you may have a different one.
If you select APAR IY11202, and tell fixdist that you're at level
126.96.36.199.04, it still wants to download 60MB of updates (probably the
difference between the sets listed above).
Will the real ML-04 please stand up?
