The latest Versioned Workload Partition (VWPAR) Version 1.1.2 is available but largely secret!
With this update I get on my AIX 7 virtual machine, in which I have installed both AIX5.2 and AIX 5.3 support:
# lslpp -L | grep -i vwpar vwpar.52.rte 18.104.22.168 C F AIX 5.2 Versioned WPAR Runtime vwpar.images.52 22.214.171.124 C F Versioned WPAR 5.2 Support vwpar.images.53 126.96.36.199 C F Versioned WPAR 5.3 Support vwpar.images.base 188.8.131.52 C F Versioned WPAR Base Support vwpar.sysmgt 184.108.40.206 C F Versioned WPAR Management #
Note 1: the 1.1.2 - before this update it reports mostly 1.1.1
Note 2: AIX 7 is mandatory for Versioned WPARs i.e. they are not supported on AIX 6.
I can't explain it but you can't find this package on FixCentral at all - I know because I looked and drove myself mad, thinking it must be there somewhere!
So how how do you get the upgrade?
I am putting this information on this AIXpert blog, just as a way to let you know its available or you would not even know there was something to request.
I hope this helps, Nigel Griffiths
