Maintaining software on standalone clients and SPOT resources

This kind of task is accomplished by performing the NIM maint operation on a SPOT using NIM application, SMIT, or command line interface.

NIM uses the installp command to construct a SPOT by installing in the SPOT the software products that each SPOT needs to support the NIM environment. Because the installp command also supports software maintenance tasks, you can perform these tasks on SPOT resources as well. For example, you can remove previously installed optional software from a SPOT when they are no longer being used. You interact with the installp command by supplying the installp_flags, and either filesets or installp_bundle attributes.
