This IBM Redbooks publication focuses on the differences introduced in AIX 5L Version 5.3 since the initial AIX 5L Version 5.3 release. It is intended to help system administrators, developers, and users understand these enhancements and evaluate potential benefits in their own environments.

Since AIX 5L Version 5.3 was introduced, many new features including JFS2, LDAP, trace and debug, installation and migration, NFSv4, and performance tools enhancements were introduced. There are many other improvements offered through updates for AIX 5L Version 5.3, and you can explore them in this book.
