    Thanks Sunit.

    I tried the command which you provided. However, the command is not returning any results. Am good at Solaris and I can easily find the WAS package name by this command..pkginfo | grep -i Websphere and it returns the results (WSBAA61 IBM WebSphere Application Server). What is the WAS equavalent package in AIX?

    Thanks,

    Hello,
    Sunit's command does work. On my AIX box:

    1. lslpp -l | grep -i WebSphere
    WSBAA61 6.1.0.0 COMMITTED IBM WebSphere Application
    WSEJB361 6.1.0.13 COMMITTED IBM WebSphere Application
    WSWBSV61 6.1.0.9 COMMITTED IBM WebSphere Application
    WSXAA70 7.0.0.0 COMMITTED IBM WebSphere Extended
    Is it possible the WebSphere is not installed properly?
    Steven.

    Try lslpp -l to verify if it returns any data before piping it to grep.

    Hi Sunit,

    It displays the output. However, I couldnt find the Websphere package though WAS server running on the machine.

    Anand, Just a thought but which version of WebSphere Application Server is installed?

    WAS V8 switched to using IBM Installation Manager and I'm suspicious that Inst Mgr doesn't update OS-specific install registries.
    With IM you'd need to run an "imcl" command e.g. "imcl listInstalledPackages -features -long" to get equivalent information.

    It is possible that the product was installed using non-root user and thus OS specific registries were not updated. If your installation requires that the product be registered with OS there are utilities that can be used.

    We had installed version 7 and FP 19 on AIX server. Would it different if the software installed with non-root access?

    You can install WebSphere with non-root id. The only component of WAS that has to be installed by root is GSKit. You can check the installation guide for more details.
