Service Bulletins PDF Print E-mail

One of those areas on IBM's portal that has moved. The old one was still there, but it did not provide any information for TL8 and TL2, so finally got around to updating all that and added the new links in the menu on the right.

The new name is: Power Server Bulletins

Very useful to find information about recent updates and their impact! Visit every now and then and keep your AIX systems healthy.

is in the eating!

I reported that I had suffered for a few days getting everything running properly after a power failure of about 90 minutes. I cannot place direct blame on everything that went wrong on the power outage.

To a certain degree, everything worked very well. Once power was back, everything came back up, though a bit slow because of dependencies in the different systems (e.g., better if the name server is up before the database). But I have a odd collection of processors systems - which have been great for learning - but not so great for "unmanaged" restarts.
