oslevel -s reports incorrectly after OS migration from 5.2 to 5.3

After AIX is upgraded from 5.2 to 5.3. The oslevel -s reports incorrectly.

# oslevel -s

5390-00-00-0000

I am looking from 5300-09-02-0849

lppchk -v is clean. The root cause is some filesets are not migrated or deleted during OS migration.


# lslpp -aL|more
then search 5.2, some of the filesets are still in 5.2 level.

use installp -u fileset_name to remove all those filesets.

Now oslevel -s returns correct level.

Migrating data is risky and complex if it is not planned well. Ilabs Technology Solutions has Microsoft certified engineers who has proved their capabilities and can assist in all stages of OS Migration process.
