How to Install Newest AHF

  • Oracle

Autonomous Health Framework (AHF)

Let's see how we install it in AIX 7.2

Unzip AHF Package

Supposed that you have downloaded the latest AHF from My Oracle Support (note 2550798.1) and uploaded it to the server.

[root@primary01 /AHF]# unzip -q AHF-AIX-PPC64_v23.10.0.zip
[root@primary01 /AHF]# ls -l
total 835480
-rwxr-x---    1 root     system    211290102 Dec 10 15:27 AHF-AIX-PPC64_v23.10.0.zip
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     system         1525 Nov 01 10:59 README.txt
-rwx------    1 root     system    216459103 Nov 01 10:58 ahf_setup
-rw-------    1 root     system          384 Nov 01 10:59 ahf_setup.dat
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     system          625 Nov 01 10:59 oracle-tfa.pub

As you can see, there're 4 files in the zip.

Run ahf_setup on One Node

We execute ahf_setup on the first node. Since we already have an old AHF in the server, so the setup switched to upgrade mode.

[root@primary01 /AHF]# ./ahf_setup
