The AIX operating system is enhanced to provide the following new capabilities in AIX 7.2 Technology Level 0:

  • AIX Live Update for Interim Fixes
    • Interim fixes can be applied on a running system either with the geninstall command or a NIM push from a NIM master or pull from a NIM client. No reboot is required, even for kernel and kernel extension interim fixes.
    • AIX Live Update for Interim Fixes are the same as traditional interim fixes, but applied in a nondisruptive way, with no reboot required. This is in contrast to AIX Hotpatch, which requires a specially built interim fix.
  • CAA automation with repository replacement mechanism
    • When the Storage Framework (SFW) detects primary (active) repository disk DOWN, it will notify CAA and CAA will automatically replace the failed repository disk with a user-specified backup repository disk
  • The SRIOV-backed VNIC, or dedicated VNIC, feature provides the second generation of PowerVM® virtual Ethernet technology. This enables the client LPAR to have direct access to the SRIOV adapter resources residing in VIOS and avoids data copy between client LPAR and VIOS. The dedicated VNIC feature offers better performance and scalability as well as the QoS capability honored by the SRIOV adapters. Furthermore, a LPAR with VNIC devices is LPM capable.
  • RDSv3 over RoCE adds support of the Oracle RDSv3 protocol over the Mellanox Connect RoCE adapters. Instead of requiring the IB network infrastructure, the feature allows the user to leverage the high-speed Ethernet connect and run the RDSv3 protocol over Oracle RAC cluster for higher performance.
  • AIX now includes flash caching. Workloads can take advantage of a read-only cache, stored in near-line flash for data frequently accessed from storage. Flash can be directly assigned to AIX partitions, or a virtual flash device can be provisioned from the VIOS. AIX partitions with virtual flash devices may be migrated to another server.
  • AIX Dynamic System Optimizer is now included as part of AIX 7.2.
  • IBM BigFix Lifecycle provides an automated, simplified patching process that is administered from a single console. It provides near real-time visibility and enforcement to deploy and manage patches to all distributed endpoints. This offering will ship with AIX Enterprise editions.

AIX Enterprise editions have been enhanced for this release:

  • AIX 7.2 Enterprise Edition V1.1 includes the following offerings:
    • IBM PowerSC™ Std Ed V1.1 (5765-PSE)
    • PowerVC Standard Edition V1 (5765-VCS)
    • Cloud Manager with OpenStack V4.3 (5765-CMO)

Processor core (or processor)

Processor core (or processor) is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. Processor core (or processor) is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor core. Entitlements must be acquired for all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

Note: Some programs may require licenses for the program and what is being managed. In that case, the following applies. In addition to the entitlements required for the program directly, licensee must obtain entitlements for this program sufficient to cover the processor cores managed by the program.

System Program Order (SPO)

An order for SPO 5692-A6P is mandatory for shipments of program distribution. The individual licensed program orders are for registration and billing purposes only. No shipment occurs under these orders.

Specify feature number 3435.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.

Electronic Service Agent™ and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support, all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX V6.1, and AIX V7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type smitty esa_main, and select Configure Electronic Service Agent. In addition, ESA now includes a powerful web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent, refer to

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.


Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent™ tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the symptoms, diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to securely transmit either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system.

For additional information, please refer to IBM Electronic Service Agent

More accurate reporting: Because system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, you are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, you can view system and support information in the My Systems and Premium Search sections of the Electronic Support website at

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with your IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, you are able to see search results that apply specifically to your systems.

For all local charges, contact your IBM representative.

Variable charges: The applicable processor-based one-time charge will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the program is licensed for use. If the program is designated to a processor in a group for which no charge is listed, the charge of the next higher group listed applies. For movement to a machine in a higher group, an upgrade charge equal to the difference in the then-current charges between the two groups will apply. For movement to a machine in a lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of charges paid.
