    Preview option in Bladelogic for AIX?

      The nativity command in AIX has the feature of preview before patching the filesets, and it is a must that every SA's will go for a preview and go ahead to patch the filesets. rather be it a ML / TL / APAR /PTFor Fileset.

       

      Advantage of the nativity tool

      # Can show you the space availability  in the server for patching,

      # patches already exists are shown

      # If efix installed it will not allow to patch

      # Proper error details if there will be clearly shown.

       

      Disadvantage of Bladelogic

      # Error is not clear

      # when efix is there,Patch analysis is complete,when patched it fails giving irrrelavant error messages
