Abstract

A method is described which allows a user to more easily add or delete Loadable Power On Self Test Configuration Files to the AIX* Operating System. This new method would be implemented as a utility or user interface to aid the user in adding or deleting Loadable Power On Self Test configuration files to the AIX Operating System. The inherent knowledge of the directory structure in which to place the configuration files, necessary permission bit settings, and execution dependencies, such as having all configuration files execute before a designated 'last' configuration file, would be programmed in the utility. For adding configuration files, the user would invoke the utility, passing to it the name of the Loadable Power On Self Test configuration file and the related Micro Channel* Bus adapter ID number.
