I am inclined to agree that an udate for AIX 6.1 and 7.1 is long overdue what say you guys...???

the redbook is a very good and a very helpful document. i use and used it in several situations as repository.
it would be extremely helpful, if we could get an updated version including the new features of NIM.

Please include WPARs as well as versioned WPARs when you update this redbook.

This is a most excellent redbook. One of my top and most frequently used references.
However it is in need of an update - specially all the features added in NIM since this version was published.

An update of this redbook would be great !

Posted by Jeff Arnsbarger on 14 July 2015 at 9:32

An updated redbook with the new features of NIM added would be welcomed by the community!

Posted by Mr. Eric Garbos on 30 January 2017 at 11:15

Please update this Guide! Info is spread across IBM Knowledge Ctr, AIX Diff Guide, etc.

NIM is at the heart of my life as a SysAdmin, and I love it, but sadly I feel like it's a legacy tool that takes massaging to keep up with modern demands. Reliance on NFS for many operations gets a bit clunky, and anything referring to rsh/rcp/tftp really needs to go! Commandline is king for scripting, but I would also like a usable GUI or menu system that will let you select multiple targets (RIP WebSM).
