Pinned topic Upgrade TL in AIX 6.1 through Systems Director 6.3.0

‏2013-02-05T20:37:52Z |
Hi Gurus, I'm using IBM Systems Director 6.3.0. Our environment is certified to use AIX_6100-06-03-1048. currently I've 6100-5 on a Server which I wanted to upgrade TL to certified level. I have collected server inventory also imported the TL to Systems Director with .sdd files and it was successful. My queries are.

1) Is that possible to upgrade this particular TL without setting up AIX NIM environment ?
2) If yes, please advise how ? I'm getting successful with errors when I right click on this package and install and choose this server.

Thanks

    No, IBM Systems Director absolutely requires a NIM server (discovered and inventoried and running the Common Agent) to handle all AIX Updates from the Update Manager.

    http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/director/pubs/topic/com.ibm.director.updates.helps.doc/fqm0_c_um_considerations_for_updating_aix_systems.html

    Get the NIM server set up, discovered, inventoried and the Update Manager settings corrected then try the operation again.
