As some know, my mission for the last few months was to upgrade a P series/AIX box to Domino R801. I will refer to it as an AIX box because that's how old it is.
And I think P series was a lousy name for a product which excellent brand recognition.
What you may not know is I am not a Unix person, sure I have installed Domino all over on everything, but one really needs to use this everyday to remember it all. If you must know I prefer AS/400's and Mainframes but bread and butter is Windows.
So I put it off while looking into more details. We did move the files there and install it, but it never took.
So as our machine comes to a halt figured it was time to do it again.
First stop? OS. Seems it is not the latest version and Domino threw a warning that we needed to update it.
Fine, go to IBM's site, locate a download spot for AIX, fill in the version, and it gives me what I need.
1.5GB of download updates.
Yes, 1.5GB, so let it run, then when done need to ftp it to the AIX box.
After some miscommunication with passwords of the root user I was able to install all 315 or so patches.
Decided I was too tired to install Domino now. Will do it tomorrow.
I have now relearned more about AIX than I remember and you know what, it feels good to do something different for a change.
Next up, Sametime integration with Quickr after rebuilding the Sametime cluster.
The fun never ends.
