A fileset in AIX terminology is a collection of functionally related files to form an installable, refer to this link that explains a lot
Whenever you install a fileset or an update of fileset on a box, you have the option to just apply it, the state of fileset is called 'APPLIED', this option enables you to reject this update of fileset and go back to previous version. You can also COMMIT a fileset, once a fileset is committed , you can reject it and go back to previous option.
The Patch Analysis job is Bladelogic is designed to provide you an option to make sure you do not install/commit on applied filesets. The option
Continue Analysis if any applied fileset found
helps you to control this behaviour.
in your case bos.alt_disk_install.boot_images on the box is in apply state, and you have set option to exit analysis if any fileste in found in applied state.
This option helps you to avoid a situauton where you commit a new update on fileset whose previous version was not committed for some reasons.
Hope this helps, i know AIX patching is just too complicated.
Let me know if you need more info.
PLease find below the meaning of filest with e.g
An installed AIX 5L system consists of many files and directories. These files and directories are grouped into what is called a fileset. A fileset is a collection of functionally related files to form an installable unit. For example, the uniprocessor kernel is in a separate fileset from the multiprocessor kernel. Filesets are the smallest individually installable units. A package, on the other hand, is a group of filesets with common functionality collected into a single, installable image. This image is sometimes called a BFF (backup format file). For instance, bos.net.tcp.client is a fileset in the bos.net package. Each fileset has a name and a V.R.M.F level. For example, the AIX 5L 5.3 has a fileset namedbos.net.tcp.client, which provides TCP/IP Client Support. Originally, its V.R.M.F was 188.8.131.52 (Version 5, Release 3, ML 0, Fix Level 0).
Stop Analysis if any applied fileset found:- Means Out Anlaysis will stop if it finds any filsets which is in APPLY state not in commit state once you will make that fileset in commit state then you will not face the Issue & u r analysis will pass.
