Installing AIX patch for IDM Linux/Unix Bi-directional driver does not update the driver

Novell Identity Manager 3.5.1
Novell Identity Manager 3.6
Novell Identity Manager 3.6.1
Novell Identity Manager Driver - Linux and UNIX - Bi-directional (formally NIS)


After installing the latest AIX patch, the build on the driver still shows the original version.


To make sure you are looking at the right version, run
/etc/rc.d/init.d/nxdrvd status
at the server.
If it still shows the old version then uninstall the driver from the server and reinstall it.  Please back up any custom scripts before the uninstall.  The reinstall at that point will overwrite them in some cases.
