AIX Service Pack Numbering is broken
User Rating: / 0

AIX Service Pack Numbering is out of sync with the release date

IMHO - In my humble opinion - the AIX oslevel identifer is broken. As a simple example, AIX 7.1 TL2 Service Pack 6 was just announced - January 30th, 2015 - but the oslevel string we are suppossed to see is: 7100-02-06-1441

In short, oslevel -s no longer provides a good indication of a service pack release date

How is this broken?

For years (i.e., through 2012-2013 at least) the last 4 digits of oslevel -s output  indicated the year and week of the release date.  So, for this service pack, by the "old rules" we should be seeing either 7100-02-06-1504 or 7100-02-06-1505 (depending on whether they wanted to say it was released in week 04 or week 05 of 2015!).

Why worry?

Well, IMHO again, appearances matter.
