How to make a copy of an existing lpp_source and update it to the latest level.

For this you will have to download the needed packages from IBM website. They are not free to download and you need user/pass and license. I will not cover this part at all.
Assuming you have already the needed packages, read what follows:

# nim -o define -t lpp_source -a server=master -a location=/export/lpp_source/core/7.1/ -a source=lppsource_71-03-01 lppsource_71-03-04
# nim -o define -t lpp_source -a server=master -a location=/export/lpp_source/core/7.1/71-03-04 -a source=/export/mksysb/global/aix71000_64_os_0303_us_1.gbl.mksysb_iplno lppsource_71-03-04

Examples will be put soon. I am not able to find them now :)

Thou shalt not steal!

If you want to use this information on your own website, please remember: by doing copy/paste entirely it is always stealing and you should be ashamed of yourself! Have at least the decency to create your own text and comments and run the commands on your own servers and provide your output, not what I did!

Or at least link back to this website.
