Figuring out system info in AIX

Posted on 2001-09-05

I'm writing a script for software installation & I need to be able to determine if my AIX systems are 32 or 64 bit via some command line something or other...

I looked at lsattr -El sys0 & lscfg -vp...nothing jumps out & screams 'I'm 64 bit' to me.

Is there any method where I can determine this for a ksh script?

TIA!

Do you wish to identify which programs are 64 or 32 bit, or if your OS is 64 or 32 bit?

actually, 'bootinfo -y' tells you if your *processor* is 32-bit or 64-bit...

'bootinfo -K' tells you what in what version the *kernel* is running.
