Application software besides the OS and its extensions should go into a separate filesystem(s) residing on volume groups other than rootvg. Such a volume group should be set up like volume groups on a fileserver.

Commercial packages

Freeware packages

A catalogue of freeware applications may be found here. Note that several of those packages install into /usr/local, which is unwanted if the machine will be an NFS client using this directory as a mount point. Assume a target directory /applfs/applb00/AIX/52/.
