Hi Micheal, thanks for your answer. Realmem is 900GB, usual ps usage is very low(lsps -s shows less than 10% normally) but the customer would manage sudden and very quick ps requests as happened at least one time some weeks ago.

How much real memory are we talking about?

And, what is the value of `lsps -s`

Administration / huge paging space on AIX 7.1 TL05 SP04 lpars

Hi Experts,
i need to understand if there are contraindications in rootvg growth due to huge paging space needs (up to 1TB of ps inside rootvg).
Best practices and reasonable aspects have been already evaluated, so i'd create a dedicated vg with n 64GB PVs to make room for n PSs avoiding usage of hot disks, and so on... but unfortunately i am not independent in decision making right now.

I'd just like understand if i could get into troubles doing so.
For example if mksysb could run into issues, even if it doen't save ps contents, and so on..

I really appreciate to hear your positions.

Many thanks

Hi !

Mmm... For AIX 7.1 and 6.1, it is efforts and time.

For AIX 5.3, it can transform in penalties not to be compliant regarding security breaches like this last one.
Even if those OS versions are hundred years old...

You should start by adding "Donation" box on the homepage, so anybody can participate :-)

Bye.

I suppose I should consider asking $$ or euros - does this save you $$ time or effort?

Hello Micheal,

And it is a success !!! Few reconfiguration to match my config files, that's normal... It is perfect !!!

I've tested it on AIX 5.3 TL12 and 7.1 TL05

Again, thank you for all your work on your Tools, you releive our AIX Admin brains, and your huge reactivity on that case :-)


Bye !

If all is working well: http://download.aixtools.net/tools/aixtools.sudo-ldap.1.9.5.1602.I should work on your AIX 5.3 systems

OK. Now I know what to build. Much easier to plan!

btw: the CVE mentioned was already patched in the 1.8.31 version. The CVE was valid for 1.8.28 and earlier - if I read that correctly.

Hi Michael !

Enjoy you family time !!

All AIX 6.1 and 7.1 are patched with RPM version now on my side.

Only AIX 5.3 TL12 SP9 remaining. I used "aixtools.sudo-ldap.1.8.31.1.I" version on them last year and it worked perfectly.
I was looking for the same but with SUDO 1.9.5p2

Thanks

sudo-ldap will do either IBM ldap - if that software is installed, or openldap - if that is installed.

sudo or sudo-ldap - if integrated with RBAC - is only suitable for AIX 6.1 and later.

Are you interested in my packaging of sudo for AIX 6.1/7.1 - as you have already updated?

I'll get several versions re-made next week. Off to see my grandson! Priorities!

Michael

p.s. - AIX 5.3 - TL12 I hope - if not, let me know - I'll reinstall my TL7 image).
