Server installation
————————-
$ cd database/stage/prereq/db/
$ cp -p refhost.xml refhost.xml.ORIG
$ vi refhost.xml
Look for the line (at or about line 55) …
package value=”xlC.aix50.rte” version=”9.0.0.0″
Change it to …
package value=”xlC.aix61.rte” version=”9.0.0.5″
Save and quit
Client installation
