Temporary fix

Comments

  • The issue is a result of some changes that were made to Red
    Hat Enterprise Linux that causes the IBM Installation
    Manager on the AIX system to not be able to access the
    appropriate native libraries in order to display the
    contents in the graphical user interface of the Network File
    System directory on the remote server.
    For more details, review Red Hat support document 331643:
    "Network File System mount from Linux to Solaris or AIX -
    readdir() function fails on Solaris or AIX with new patch."
    (https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/331643).
