Hi

lslpp -L all

will give you all installed software and versions.  You can filter further using the 'grep' command;

lslpp -L all | grep -i <searchstring>

lslpp should certainly give you information about;

IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment
IBM WebSphere MQ
IBM HACMP
IBM WebSphere MQ Client


Oracle Database Enterprise Edition
Oracle RAC

I'm not certain it'll give you the Oracle information, but you can check that by running the following as either root or oracle;

echo $ORACLE_HOME

or

echo $ORAHOME

or

su - oracle

and run

env | grep ORA


Veritas Storage Foundation Enterprise Edition;

use the showversion script in the /opt/VRTS/install directory

Reflection for Secure IT, Unix Server - Not sure, maybe use the 'find' command
Reflection for Secure IT, Unix Client - Not sure, maybe use the 'find' command

Veritas Netbackup Enterprise Server
Not entirely sure, but heres a starter;

ls -l /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/

eG Monitoring Agent - Not sure, maybe use the 'find' command

Cheers, JP.
