Hi,

it seems that your CD is for WebSphere Application Server (Network Deployment) and not for a basic AIX OS install.
Installation via installp is not possible with this medium, afaik.
The medium should contain .tar files which have to be installed with a script contained on the CD called 'launchpad.sh'.

If you really plan to install WAS components, here is a document that will help you:

If you plan to install AIX, however, you will need to get the correct CD.

HTH

Cheers

RR_MOVED is RockRidge extension - store very long paths in iso9660 compliant CD.
What is the OS you are trying to open this CD? (oslevel -r)
I guess AIX 4.3.2 was first to support RockRidge, but I might be wrong.
