## I have already posted a similar post but this one is how to retrieve the binaries from a TSM backup"

I have 2 versions of perl installed on my AIX server. I was at version 5.8.2 and when I upgraded the server to AIXTL11, Perl was upgraded to version 5.8.8, I dont want to use the new version as most of the applications use old perl and perl modules.

How do I restore my 5.8.2 version using TSM - My perl is installed in /usr/opt/perl5 and I want to retrive the version from a specific date

Well,

I really don't recommend messing around with AIX's system perl!

Declining all responsibility:

To restore everything under /usr/opt/perl5 replacing any existing file:

dscm restore '/usr/opt/perl5/*' -subdir=yes -latest

Don't you have a test box??

Should you really perform the above don't forget to link /usr/bin/perl to the old binary (as I described in our other case).
Use the restored /usr/opt/perl5/link_perl_64 script!

So my goal is to restore 5.8.2 perl binaries and relink /usr/perl and /usr/bin/perl to /usr/opt/perl5/bin/5.8.2_64bit

OK,

but since there is no version number under /usr/opt/perl5/bin you will have to overwrite it, thus definitely loosing perl 5.8.8!

Maybe you could rename or copy it beforehand to something like /usr/opt/perl5/bin588

What is /usr/perl ?
