Thanks wmp, I have rebooted the system after the AIX "update" to AIX 6.1TL8SP3, I just was curious to know what happens if I want to Roll back, because lately I have updated a wrong system and luckily it was a test server and what is why I have asked this question.
Phew!

And I thought ...

Anyway, please take my advice to create a bootable mksysb image on tape/DVD/NIM before applying an SP or even a TL very seriously!
Having such a thing at hand to restore the OS if needed can (will) save your butt!

With a sigh of relief
