BigFix Patch is pleased to announce the support of CentOS endpoints as NFS repositories for the Patches for AIX site.
Users can use the Advanced AIX Deployment Wizard to register CentOS endpoints as NFS repositories to help manage technology level or service pack fix packs.
Actions to Take
The CentOS endpoint must be subscribed to the Patching Support site.
Gather the latest version of Patches for AIX site and Patching Support site. Activate the analysis “Register Linux Endpoint Folder as an NFS Repository - AIX” (ID 69) of the Patching Support site.
To register the CentOS endpoint, open the Advanced AIX Deployment Wizard in the Patches for AIX site, and navigate to the Linux NFS Repository Management tab.
Currently, only CentOS 6 and CentOS 7 on Intel processors are supported.
An AIX endpoint is required during CentOS registration because a fix pack’s Table of Content can only be generated on an AIX endpoint. Write permission to the CentOS NFS repository will be granted to the AIX endpoint for generating the Table of Contents.
