This is embarrassing! While we always encourage users to upgrade to the latest AIX TL and SP levels, AIX 6.1 TL 8 will cause the aixDataProvider-61 process to core on the AIX Premium and VIOS Premium agents. AIX 6.1 TL 8 is the underlying AIX for VIOS 2.2.2, so that is why the VIOS agent also has this problem. Earlier, the AIX Premium agent also had a core problem on AIX 7.1 TL1.
The good news is that these problems are resolved in the following interim fixes:
It is always a good idea to have the latest interim fix, so take a look at the readme to see how many fixes you can pick up.
