Running the NIM check operation

After adding or removing software, you must run the NIM check operation on the lpp_source to update the installation table-of-contents file for the resource. You can run the NIM check operation from SMIT, or the command line.

In addition to updating the table-of-contents for the lpp_source, the check operation also updates the simages attribute for the lpp_source, which indicates whether the lpp_source contains the images necessary to install the Base Operating System images on a machine.
