  • IBM "reorganized" the AIX/pSeries/RS Libraries ... Did they consider that around 32% is still using AIX V4.3.3, even if it's Service Discontinued by the end of this year? The documentation of the AIX V4.3.3 commands is not available anymore at IBM ... I found a little work around for now ... 
    Request: Anyone out there (University?) who has an RS as AIX V4.3.3 documention server (including search) on-line on the Internet? And would allow me to link to that? If the load gets to heavy I will take it away again ... let me know at : help@rootvg.net
