how to install relocatable packages on AIX

Post by Nicki on Tue Apr 15, 2008 2:14 am

1. create Volumegroup, filesystem and directory

2. create relocation path (the path that should be used instead of the ./) This can be any valid path that
is not "/" and has a size no greater than 512 characters
mkusil -R <desired_path>

3. check if location is properly created
lsusil -R ALL

4. copy packages to be installed into any folder on the box and perform inutoc_r

5. install required packages using installp_r -R
installp_r -R <desired_path> -ad <package_location> <rte package name>

6. check if installation had been successful
lslpp_r -R ALL -Lc




availabel commands:

mkusil -R creates a relocation path - Usage: mkusil -R <RelocatePath> -c <Comments> [XFa]
-a = Attach an existing installation as a USIL instance
-c = Comments to include in the USIL definition (visible with lsusil)
-R = Path to new USIL location. Must be valid directory.
-X = Automatically expand of space needed


lsusil -R lists available relocation paths - Usage: lsusil [-R <RelocatePath> | "ALL"]
-R = Path to existing USIL location.


rmusil -R removes relocation path - Usage: rmusil -R <RelocatePath>
-R = Path to existing USIL location.

chusil -R changes an attribute of an existing USIL instance - Usage: chusil -R <RelocatePath> -c <NewComments> [X]
-c = New comments to include in the USIL definition (visible with lsusil)
-R = Path to existing USIL location.
-X = Automatically expand of space needed

inutoc_r creates .toc file
inulag_r manages license agreements
instfix_r installs filesets associated with keywords or fixes
installp_r installs files into relocation path
lppchk_r verifies files of an installable software product
lslpp_r lists files
