Description:

The lsm command can be used to determine which binaries are contained in a UNIX installation package that is delivered, for example, with a published fix.

Solution:

To determine which binaries are contained in a UNIX installation package.

  1. Copy the installation package to a temporary directory.

    For example:
    #cd /CAproducts/Server01/nsm110cum/QO92712# lsca-cs-atech-manager-policy-log-11.0.07278-0858.AIX.@pifca-cs-atech-manager-policy-prf-11.0.07278-0858.AIX.@pifca-cs-atech-manager-policy-uxsa2-11.0.07278-0858.AIX.@pifca-cs-atech-services-lang-11.0.07278-0859.AIX.@pifca-unicenter-atech-log-11.0.07278-0000.AIX.@pif.........
  2. Run the command lsm to list the contents.

    For example:
    # lsm -Q ./ca-cs-atech-manager-policy-log-11.0.07278-0858.AIX.@pif -lNAME                      : ca-cs-atech-manager-policy-logVERSION                   : 11.0.7278.858ARCH                      : AIXINSTALLATION_PATH         : $PATHca_cs_atechLOCALE                    : ENUFORMAT                    : 3PRODUCT_SIZE              : 0.00 MBBUILDDATE                 : 10/05/2007PACKAGER_VERSION          : 4.2.5301.0SUPPLIER                  : Computer Associates International, Inc.COMMENT                   : CA Common Services - Agent Technolog Manager Policy for caiLogA2 Agent .PRODUCT_FAMILY            : CA/CCSPREREQUISITE_PRODUCT      : ca-cs-atech-services-lang , 11.0.0.0 , >=PARAMETER, VALUE, TYPE    : $ACSGROUP , system , 0PARAMETER, VALUE, TYPE    : $ACSUSER , root , 0PARAMETER, VALUE, TYPE    : $CASHCOMP , /opt/CA/SharedComponents , 2PARAMETER, VALUE, TYPE    : $CCSGROUP , system , 0PARAMETER, VALUE, TYPE    : $CCSUSER , root , 0PARAMETER, VALUE, TYPE    : $PATHca_cs_atech , $CASHCOMP/ccs/atech , 2PARAMETER, VALUE, TYPE    : $PATHca_cs_mib , $CASHCOMP/ccs/mibs , 2PARAMETER, VALUE, TYPE    : $ca_product , caiLogA2 , 0COMPONENT, VERSION        : base , 11.0.7278.858 -rw-r--r--  root      system        5696  11/15/06 11:38 services/config/distrib/dsm/caiLogA2.atp-rw-r--r--  root      system        2840  02/01/06 23:07 services/config/distrib/wvgate/caiLogA2.wvc-rw-r--r--  root      system       44361  02/01/06 23:08 $PATHca_cs_mib/included/caiLogA2.txtdrwxrwxr-x  root      system              12/17/09 11:55 services................
