I hope you upgraded the BFF version of openssl and not the RPM...? You way might work, but be careful as you should not mix the YUM repos with Perzl/Bull RPMs as they are not fully ABI compatible and that might come back and bite you later on. RPM and YUM might be happy based on versions and dependencies ...

Looks like you have lots of RPMs installed already? Like openssl? That has to go. What I do is to 1. Save off some config files, like /etc/sudoers and "rpm -qa" output 2.

Yes, this was a decision a while back. All the packages are removing anything from /usr and put everything in /opt/freeware. This is to avoid the periodical problems of clashes between AIX and RPM files. I would add "/opt/freeware/bin:/opt/freeware/sbin" to your default PATH. Not all RPMs have been updated ...

Because hdiskXX have different numbers accross the cluster? No need to do anything really, PowerHA makes no assumptions about disk names, so you can just leave it as is and all is fine. However, if you have policies on disk naming or just a streak of OCD - which any good sysadmin have :) - what you basically ...

Hi! When installing YUM on a newer AIX server (7200-04-02) and using https repos and not http, there are many missing dependencies that are not in the latest yum_bundle_v5.tar file. There is either a very extensive list of required updates to apply before yum can be installed, or I need to temporarily ...
