Hi

If I have AIX or PowerHA(HACMP) installed with the latest version and SPack or even AIX with the latest TL and SPack, where can I find, if any, the APARs?

I'm having some issues but I want to find if there are new APARs.

Thanks.

Hi Israel,

this is not as straightforward as it might look at first sight.

IBM don't publish lists of fixes outside their Service Packs anymore, except for Security Advisories which you can view from Fix Central.

They offer so-called "subscriptions" instead, with which you can register via the Suport Portal:
https://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/myportal

Find the "Notifications" box, click "Manage Subscriptions". It should be clear that you'll need your IBM ID for this.

 On the next page click the "Subscribe" Tab.

Now you can choose "Power" to reach a subselections page.

- Choose your AIX, then "High Impact" for the newest Fixes and "Auto-subscribe" to get info about the newest SPs/TLs

- Choose "Cluster on Power", then "PowerHA"

- Choose "Virtualization on Power" , then select the desired subtopic, including "Auto-subscribe".

Now wait for the news to arrive.
You can select Email notications and/or simple addition of news to the folder(s) you just created, or  RSS feed.

On the other hand, if you're facing a specific issue you can of course use the Support Search:
http://www.ibm.com/search/csa/search?sn=spe&filter=+ibmtaskid:DL

or the "Fix Search" facility of Fix Central.

Finally, there is still SUMA, the AIX Service Update Management Assistant, a tool which you are most probably familiar with. It's in the fileset "bos.suma" which you must install if it isn't already there, then you can reach the tool via "smitty suma".

Have fun!
