niminit

Use niminit to configure the nimclient package. This will look if /etc/niminfo exists and create it if it does not exist. You can the use nimclient provider after niminiting the client.

aix_niminit node[:hostname] do
  master "nimmaster"
  connect "nimsh"
  pif_name node[:network][:default_interface]
  action :setup
end

aix_niminit node[:hostname] do
  action :remove
end

aix_niminit node[:hostname] do
  master "nimmaster"
  connect "nimsh"
  pif_name "en1"
  action :setup
end

Parameters:

  • name - hostname of the nimclient
  • master - hostname of the nim master
  • pif_name - interface name
  • connect - nimsh or shell

Actions: * setup - setup the nimclient * remove - remove nimclient configuration

nimclient

Use nimclient to install packages, update service pack, or technology level. Your NIM server should meet these requirements to work with the nimclient provider: * All resources name must end with the type of the resource (check example below): * 7100-03-05-1514-lpp_source * 7100-03-05-1514-spot * myinstallpbundle-installp_bundle * All spot and lpp_source must match the exact oslevel output. To find the next available lpp_source or spot the provider is checking for your oslevel and comparing it with the lpp_source name * 7100-03-01-1341-lpp_source * 7100-03-02-1412-lpp_source * 7100-03-03-1415-lpp_source * 7100-03-04-1441-lpp_source * 7100-03-05-1524-lpp_source * 7100-03-01-1341-spot * 7100-03-02-1412-spot * 7100-03-03-1415-spot * 7100-03-04-1441-spot * 7100-03-05-1524-spot

Recommendation: create all the lpp_source with the simage attribute to avoid ambiguity.

$ lsnim -l 7100-03-05-1524-lpp_source
7100-03-05-1524-lpp_source:
   class       = resources
   type        = lpp_source
   arch        = power
   Rstate      = ready for use
   prev_state  = unavailable for use
   location    = /export/nim/lpp_source/7100-03-05-1524
   simages     = yes
   alloc_count = 1
   server      = master
