    I think we established dnf from AIX Open Source Toolbox works fine.
    This is now a problem with your particular AIX VM.

    AIX Support does not cover this. Nor does Community support. 
    I certainly do not have the time.

    Your could hire IBM Lab Services to assist you.

    Good luck, N

    AIX 7.1 goes out of support at end of April. I hope you have extended support contract for this.


    Just install – zip and unzip from IBM Linux tool box and you will be done with it. Very simple why you want to use 7-zip. As Niegel said it is community service. You have to do most of the work.  Just use zip and unzip. This people could be part of Kendryl in India.

    Hello Thanks for your response!

    Customer wants to open the file which is encrypted in "AES-256" format. That is the reason we are installing P7zip.

    This is a free ware software. You get it free you are not paying license fees.

    Do rpm -qa | grep libgcc and find installed libgcc if you have older version on the server that you may have to uninstall it. Do preview uninstall first.

    Also do preview install and find out dependencies and download all dependencies first.
