I've been asked to install PowerHA 5.5 onto AIX 5.3 TL12 SP2. Now I'm taking a look at Fixcentral, but it's not very clear on how Service Packs for PowerHA actually work.
I'm looking at PowerHA for AIX 5.3, Service Packs and it lists a bunch of APAR's (8 to be exact).
and so forth.
Now do I need to download all 8 APAR's and apply them in reverse order? Or like AIX, does the latest one contain all the previous fixes from previous APAR's?
I've taken a look at the two most recent APAR's, which both contain a fix for the cluster.es.server.testtool fileset. One lists it as cluster.es.server.testtool.126.96.36.199 and the previous one at cluster.es.server.testtool.188.8.131.52. This makes sense, but I just want to be sure that I'm not missing any fixes only applying the latest.
When downloading the latest, I did check the following two options;
- Include prerequisites and co-requisite fixes (you can de-select the ones you do not need later)
- Replace superseded fixes with the latest supersede
