I am trying to upgrade my IBM P series server AIX 5.2 to Technology Level 10 SP2 from Base version. For TL 10 SP2 we need to upgrade first to TL 10 SP1 then SP2, I have successfully done the upgrade to TL (Technology Level) 10 and SP1, after reboot I checked the OS by the command oslevel -s its showing the correct version 5200-10-01. After that i applied the patch for SP2 then I restarted the server, again I checked the OS by the command oslevel -s, but this time the server shows 5200-00-00-0000, but I checked the command oslevel -g its giving the output and showing the required files are upgraded to SP2, but when I give the command oslevel -s it shown only 5200-00-00-0000, iy should show 5200-10-02-0073.

Please give a solution for this, and why this happening and is it impact my application running on this server.

Wouldn't hurt to check with them anyway.  On a slow day they might just throw you a bone or two to head you in the right direction.  Check IBM's Fix Central and see if there is anything there that might address the issue.

Good Luck

check instfix -i |grep 5200
This tell's you where SP or TL are not complete.
then run lslpp -Lc > file.  
Go to fix central page and select aix 5200-sp2 for download, in the box "Detailed system fix information (optional)" put your file created with lslpp . this is the way that you download only those filesets you need to achieve the system level that you want
