Does the Altiris Agent for UNIX 6.2 support AIX 6.1?
Last Updated August 24, 2009
Do the following products support AIX 6.1?
Altiris Agent for UNIX and Linux 6.2
Inventory Solution for UNIX and Linux 6.2
Software Delivery for UNIX and Linux 6.1 SP1
Symantec has performed fairly high-level testing of the Altiris Agent 6.x on AIX 6.1. The testing involved the following:
Push install of the agent (manually selecting AIX 5.3 OS in the 'Install settings' screen)
Manual install of the agent (using aex-bootstrap)
Manual uninstall of the agent (using aex-uninstall)
Enable all Inventory Solution for Unix/AIX tasks
Enable default Software Delivery sample policy
Create and enable one additional command-line only software delivery job
All tests were performed using the default settings, i.e., installation path, package paths, run levels, etc.
The following product builds were tested:
Altirs Agent for UNIX and Linux 6.2.1378 with hotfix Agent for UNIX and Linux KB39189
Altiris Inventory Solution for UNIX and Linux 6.2.1034
Altiris Software Delivery Solution for UNIX and Linux 6.1.3006
The testing was performed on the following platform:
IBM (9110-510) P5 510 pSeries
Architecture - PowerPC_POWER5 Speed - 1499 MHz
'oslevel -g' returns: Actual Level: 220.127.116.11 Maintenance level: 18.104.22.168.
There were no errors encountered during any procedure.
The resource shows in the 'All AIX Computers' collection. There is not an existing collection for just AIX 6.1 computers. Cloning a corresponding 5.x collection and modifying the selection criteria easily remedies this.
Note that this test is in no way to be considered exhaustive or to cover all possible run-time configurations, patch levels and environments.
