How to Install UNZIP in AIX 7.2

  • by

I found there's no unzip utility available in AIX 7.2.

$ which unzip
which: 0652-141 There is no unzip in /usr/bin /etc /usr/sbin /usr/ucb /home/oracle/bin /usr/bin/X11 /sbin .

After doing some research, I know we need to install unzip from AIX toolbox, which contains a collection of open source and GNU software built for AIX IBM Systems.

Download unzip RPM

First of all, we need to download unzip RPM from AIX toolbox to server.

Install unzip RPM

Then use rpm to install unzip. In this case, the package I got is unzip-6.0-3.aix6.1.ppc.rpm.

# rpm -ivh unzip-6.0-3.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
Preparing...                          ################################# [100%]
Updating / installing...
   1:unzip-6.0-3                      ################################# [100%]

Check unzip Utility

# which unzip
/usr/bin/unzip
# rpm -q unzip
unzip-6.0-3.ppc

Now, we can use unzip to uncompress zip files (*.zip).
