AIXOSLevel

Displaying the exact version of AIX

Now, this is a pain in the neck, since AIX has multiple versions, sub-versions, Technology Level and Patches, etc...

The most simple command you can use to check the AIX version is oslevel. For instance:

andre@galactus$ oslevel -s
5300-04-00

In the information returned above, here is a short "explanation" of the numbers:

Number :Value :Meaning :
15300Version 5.3
204Technology Level (TL) 4
300Patch Level/Service Pack 00

Hope this helps!
